A Visit From The Turkey Vultures Today

The wind often blows north here, up Nance Canyon, creating an updraft above our property, which is used by the vultures, hawks, and eagles to rapidly gain altitude.

We had an unusual number of turkey vultures roosting here today, for about an hour. Two perched on the fence, with four more on a nearby tree snag, and even one in our skeleton oak.

I stood about 40 feet/13 m from the birds on the fence, and snapped away! Please enjoy these five favorites of the birds, and a sixth of yesterday’s sunset:
