    I live in northeast AR and have noticed that this year there seems to be a huge population increase of vultures in this area. I have seen flocks of them in trees, on top of barns, and in open fields. Diving down the road on this past Saturday and one took out the passenger side rear view mirror. Anyone else notice a rise in vulture population?

    I will have to take a picture for you, but at my in-laws there is a tree that the vultures flock to in the evenings. I've seen upwards of 60+ vultures there a one time. I will try to get you a picture of them this week, there are always 30+ there and many more other times.

          I have not noticed a increase although I do have them around camp all the time, along with black helicopters. My idea is just 'keep moving' and they won't bother you.

                Vultures roost communally, so it's not uncommon to see a lot of them in one area. If they are causing damage with their feces, contact USDA Wildlife Services...they deal with breaking up vulture roost sites on a regular basis.

                  A little buzzard trivia: Why do vultures circle their meal?

                    Either to sniff the air to see if the carrion is a fresh kill or to see if there are other, ground, scavengers around that might lay in wait for the vulture.
