Mr and Mrs. Vulture annonce the virth of their twin babies, Vivian Vulture and Valentino Vulture! :-):-):-) These cuties joined Auntie Merry Myrtle and Uncle Frankie as part of their pack today. Actually, they may have peeped out of their shells yesterday.

The Mom and Dad have been soooo attentive ever since the eggs were laid. They rotated out twice a day and now, looks like it will be even more often.

The pictures don’t show you how cute and soooo fluffy they are! Their little heads and mouths appear to be black. One is bigger than the other.

Notice in the video how the parent pulls the smaller one closer. Sooo sweet! And the noises you hear are 100% from the parent. They’ve been very good about letting me peek in periodically on them and it doesn’t seem to overly upset them. Still, I won’t abuse the privilege.

California girl Jasper Lily will be bringing stuffies to da’ Va. Pawty! Merry Myrtle and Frankie will be bringing baby Vulture stuffies to da’ Va. Pawty!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Oh wow! Vultures!! Another thing we don’t have over here!! They’re a lot cuter than I thought they would be!!  

And Valentino Vulture is too funny!! 😊 He should make and sell his own line of overpriced hand bags!

Now THAT is super duper cool! I love that you are caring for them. Vultures do a great service in nature, and so do you 🙂

I think Sally is our animal “whisperer”.  Whether it walks on two, three or four or flies thru the the air, Sally’s got its number.  Precious baby lives Sally and when they’re grown up they will repay you by eating all your mosquitoes and ticks. 😀

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Ruh roh!!! RUUUUHHHHHH ROOOOOOOOH! OOOOMMMMMMVVVVVVVVVVVVVV!!! Kissses hissssses kisssses hissseeeeessssssss hissssssssssssssssss … (DaRuby Roo does NOT approve but DaBears are fascinated…CharlieBear-and previously Heffalump- when seeing Vivian and Valentino’s cousins above the pasture- both would deeply WOOF WOOF WOOF and try to jump up into the sky. Not that Pyrs jump that well, ahem…Can only think that goes back to their livestock guardian ways. Heffalump would get so enamored he would race around and follow the flight pattern…can only imagine what would happen if they met on the ground!) 

Too adorable!!! Love that you shared them with us!!!

Thank you everybody!!! 🙂 It’s so much fun reading your replies!! 🙂 We’ve got the nicest groupp of peopl here! 🙂 🙂 🙂

So it’s a day ir two shy of their two week birthday. I think you can see how they’ve grown a little bit. They both appear to be about the same size now. Look at that “wing span” already!

They made their Mom a Mother’s Day card. Such thoughtful little Vultures 🙂
