Turkey Vultures

I have previously written of vultures flying above the Habitat (say at 50-100 feet). As these birds are common and do not typically really come through the Habitat, they receive little blog exposure. Last Sunday, a pair of turkey vultures came through the Habitat at about 10 to 20 feet above the ground.
In fact, they were so close to the ground, I assumed that they had found a dead animal in the brush to feast on. The pair never though landed.From their size, flat wing profile while soaring, and red, featherless head, these are clearly turkey vultures.
