Turkey Vultures are migrating

We saw about 8 different groups of 20 turkey vultures circling over Amboy on our way to breakfast yesterday. We saw a group of about 80, with about 20 in the trees below, near FiLoxSee. It's a pleasure to behold!

You can distinguish the vultures from ravens and hawks because the bottom half of their wing is white, and they're so damned big!

  1. I saw one just early this morning gliding up high over my home. Magnificent birds in flight to watch! Later, on my morning jog I saw a bunch of them off in the distance circling around something; maybe a dead jackrabbit.
