Turkey Vultures (4)
|My first sighting of Turkey Vultures (Cathartes aura) in the wild!!!!|
I could have been very happy with one, but found two of them together! They were seated on the top of a tall, large tree.. and against the sunlight. Call it a record shot, but am happy to capture that breathtaking view :):)
My first Turkey Vulture, i had seen at Drumlin Farm, Lincoln. That bird was an injured bird, so was kept in captivity. Such a large bird it was! I wondered what it would feel like when seen in open.. and then, there they were! At Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, Topsfield.
Check the WS for a slightly clearer view of one of them (the RHS one).
