Vultures do not build nests, and babies are often found alone on rock ledges and in caves. In rural areas, barns and silos may appear to be caves. In urban areas, abandoned warehouses, factories, and other large buildings with broken windows could also be considered a cave to a nesting vulture. These are all natural and should not be disturbed.
A baby vulture found in someone’s backyard or hopping down the street is not normal and needs help.
