Soaring turkey vultures

I saw a lot of turkey vultures at Wyalusing. They’re large birds, with wingspans up to 6 feet.

The best way to identify them is the light grey color under their wings (with a smaller stripe of black at the front).

They glide along the thermals of the bluffs in groups, very rarely flapping their wings. At one point I counted 10 of them soaring the sky together.

  1. Excellent photos of turkey vultures – wing span really shows up. Liked the last photo of dark bird soaring against the bright blue sky. Excellent composition
