They are staying close because they want to be first on the scene when she crashes.

If your friend is already dead, and being eaten by vultures, I think it's okay to feed some bits of your friend to one of the vultures, to teach him to do some tricks. But only if you're serious about adopting the vulture. - Jack Handey

Sure, they're not predatory birds that would kill you outright, but to echo above, you probably look like a flying buffet cart waiting to be delivered, lady.

Lorelle: I live near a wildlife reserve and see turkey vultures all the time. They're awesome.

They roost near Cleveland, too.

I 'd never seen one until I was about 30, then I as driving down some back country road and saw one just standing there next to the road  At first I thought it was a novelty mailbox post, but then it moved.

HUGE farkers.

Then, later that month, I saw another one chilling in the bushes at a gas station in Suburbia where I work.  They're even bigger when you get out of your car and WHAM giant bird five feet from you...

She better hope the vultures aren't intelligent enough to figure out that if they rip the glider apart with their talons her flight trajectory will change drastically to one that favors them getting a meal.

Egalitarian: As long as you look alive and healthy, no problem.

but yeah I'm not surprised, even the dumbest of birds have different personalities. They vary a lot on aggression, curiosity, interest in affection, different behaviors.

Except for hummingbirds who are all assholes.
