Sightings: Turkey Vulture spotted in Barrington, Mchenry County - On March 31st 2009 at 10:15 am we spotted a Turkey Vulture having breakfast in the front lawn of an abandon house. We pulled next to it about 10 feet away and watched for about 5 min. The Vulture flew up into a tree next to us, then flew in the air and circled us a couple of times, after which we left. A very rare bird for these parts.
