Turkey Tuesday

We’re seeing more Black Vultures as they spread north, but, in general, the vulture overhead around here is still most likely to be a Turkey Vulture. This is one of a couple who were passing over Green-Wood recently.

In the last photo, see how the sliver/white back end of the wing feathers stretch from the primary (finger) feathers at the wingtips all the way back to the body? On a Black Vulture, only the fingers are silvery-white. A BV also has a rather short tail in comparison to a TV.

    My husband and I were out for a “Sunday drive” when we ran across 7 turkey vultures sitting in the trees. I couldn’t believe how majestic they were.
