A usual sight outside my bedroom window. The neighborhood osprey sitting on my neighbor’s dock eating a fish.
Then I realized a vulture was sitting on the same dock across from him.
Another vulture flew in right in front of my window.
You can see the osprey on the left side and the two vultures on the right side. It’s the first time I’ve seen vultures near the osprey.
They both sat there eyeing the fish. The osprey didn’t eat while they were sitting there. He kept watching them both.
One of the vultures flew off and the other one flew over to the side the osprey was on. They were now on the same side.
The vulture only stayed there a few seconds and flew off. I guess they realized the osprey wasn’t giving up what was left of his fish. I’m surprised the osprey didn’t fly off. All of this took place in a matter of 5 minutes. I just happened to look out the window last weekend and saw the vulture sitting there with the osprey, then caught the other one flying in. I’m glad no one was injured in this standoff.
