Some north suburban residents are concerned by the appearance of several large vultures.

The vultures are hanging out on the ledges of high-rises in Skokie.

Skokie Animal Control officers have identified the birds as turkey vultures which are not a threat to people. They usually feed on road kill.

The birds recently made a comeback and can be seen more often throughout Illinois.
