It's the all too common vulture, they seem to be everywhere! Everywhere you go you see these birds flying overhead looking for their next meal. There are several species of vultures that you may encounter, but usually, the "turkey vulture" or the "black vulture" both of these varieties can be seen daily.

Because I see vultures so much, I got to thinking should this be the new state bird here in New Jersey lol ? Obviously, I'm being a bit sarcastic, but it seems like the vulture is the bird you see MOST these days, agree?

So after I thought of this, I then thought what other birds might be on the list as the most commonly seen here in New Jersey:

  • Seagull
  • Blue Jay
  • Red-Winged Blackbird
  • Grackle
  • Sparrow

Those are just some of the birds that I also see quite frequently, what bird would you add to the list or would you nominate the vulture also lol ?

By the way, the official state bird here in New Jersey is the Eastern Goldfinch

 

The New, New Jersey State Bird?

You see them everywhere, the Vulture now seems to be the most common bird in the Garden State
