Turkey Vulture Freezes Above Sioux Falls, Lands on Deck

No, Chicken Little, the sky isn’t falling. It’s merely a frozen turkey vulture dropping from the sky. Sound like fiction? The scenario became a reality in Sioux Falls, S.D. earlier this week when a frozen turkey vulture dropped out of the sky and onto the deck of a family home, according to the Argus Leader.

“My wife was making breakfast, and she suddenly yelled, ‘Adam! A large bird just fell out of the sky!’,” homeowner Adam Weber told the paper. Weber explained that the bird appeared iced over and sought shelter under a table on the deck. The vulture eventually left during the night.

Incredibly, this wasn’t the first frosty bird to land on Weber’s house. A second turkey vulture fell from the sky onto his roof, but hasn’t moved and appears to be dead, Weber said.

So why all the frozen, falling birds? A Sioux Falls Animal Control officer told the Argus Leader that when wild birds are covered with ice, they are unable to roost in trees and will stay on the ground until they thaw out and storms pass.
