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!
