(WICU) The warmer forecast may cause a huge number of turkey vultures to move north from their temporary roosts at Presque Isle, Pennsylvania.

More than 400 of the big birds have spent the past several days at the park.

Many of them are in trees along Presque Isle Bay.

It is not unusual to see the birds in our area. Some stay, most of them are migrating, but it is very unusual to see so many in one spot.

Experts say it is all about the weather.
