I think this pair of Black Vultures are doing the tour of 6th floor ledges in Reston. On Thursday I was sitting at my desk overlooking the Reston Parkway Tollboth exit, when I had a feeling of being watched.... I looked towards the window to see two vultures looking in, not five feet away. At one point, as an astonished colleague approached, one bird even tapped on the window with its bill. They appeared to be 'just good friends'. There was some discussion about the superstitions surrounding vultures but the general office consensus was 'how beautiful' they were.

Bird lovers, At the U.S. Geological Survey building in Reston this week, I unexpectedly was privy to the mating ritual of a pair of beautiful Black Vultures. While discussing dismal 05 budget projections with my colleagues, I noticed a pair of Black Vultures sitting on a 6th floor ledge sunning themselves. This is highly unusual since I have very rarely seen Black Vultures even flying over the Survey building in my 20 years there. Then, during the next 15 minutes, the lovely couple mated twice to the cheers of my co-workers. The Vultures then flew off not to be seen again. A debate now centers on just what this early spring omen means for our budget next year. Vultures may be a harbinger of gloom and doom but hope springs eternal with the coming of future offspring. What fun! Art You are subscribed to VA-BIRD.
