The first time I ever saw a Turkey Vulture was in 1974 when I was driving on the I-75 on my way to Florida. Since then they have extended their range and are now a common sight north of Lake Ontario.
Wauw om deze zomaar tegen te komen is al mooi maar de foto,s zijn geweldig.
Great close ups, Brian. Turkey vultures are now flying our skies as of about 4 years ago.
Incredible shots, Brian!
...isn't it great to come across something new, and to also get fantastic photos too; always a treat from you Brian
He's even more creepy than the buzzards we have around here.
they are pretty impressive!
hooray for you! i think the black vultures are very handsome, actually. they perch on my power pole a lot and don't mind the dogs or me moving around below.
I agree with Tex, a very handsome bird. We don't get them this far north. Great photos!
Sorry I just can't say he's a well dressed man. Eerie. Thanks for sharing anyway. Rare.
We have tons of these, but I've never gotten a photo. These are really great! Magnificent bird and keeps our environment in check.
My on my!!! You rely got some great shots of this one. He is one impressive specimen capable of getting whatever he wants. Such an impressive bird. Quite an impressive black suit he is sporting for you.
Sharp eyes, surveying what is below, and those claws or talons, a firm grip on the post, wonderful photo. Cheers, Jean.
Oh very special bird I thinkNice posts....the pink flowers...what a colour. The egret is Beautiful...havent seen anyone here yet. Have a great day!M//
Nothing like it on my patch Brian...
I think impressive is the right word. I wouldn't call him handsome exactly.
i have photographed them, never like this * sigh *awesome brian, you can "feel" his size!!
Impressive shots Brian, I love these guys. The first time I really got a close up look at these vultures was a couple of years ago. We always seem to have the red headed ones flying around here. Fascinating birds and nature's clean-up crew.
Wow - you captured him beautifully! Wonderful shots, Brian!
What an impressive-looking bird he is! He looks very regal on his lofty perch.
So many think they're ugly, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I'm one of those...they're unique and quite handsome. Well done Brian. Very artistic compositions.
I love all birds known as Vultures. They are fascinating in behavior. Nice up close shot on this one. Congrats!
Nice job. They are impressive to see, but that face . . .
What a wonderful bird. Great captures.
I'm still hoping to see a black vulture one day. We have loads of the turkey vultures here. These are fantastic captures!~Lindy
Great shots and a lovely bird.
Hi Brian!Yes the trees are like that because of years of wind from the ocean. Öland is a very nice and rare Island. Many Tourists is visiting in summer. It has also a very rare nature and birds. Its on the Unescos World heritage. You can find a lot over Öland on Google
I'm not sure I should use the word "nice" to describe these birds, but you probably know what I mean!cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Until recently I could honestly say I love the American Black Vulture, which you photographed superbly. Then I learned about what they do to birthing calves...changed my mind back a bit...
Great find!! Boom, Bobbi and Gary.
I've never seen a Black Vulture before. Your shots are fabulous. What a cool (and sort of creepy looking) bird.
He's all dressed up for the banquet! Nice shot. Glad you saw the Black vulture.
He's not as ugly as the turkey vulture, but the more I learn about them, the more I hope I never seen one.
Wow! He's a rather handsome, but scary fellow. I have seen many turkey vultures in my day, but never one of these. Thanks!
It is certainly one of the smarter vultures of its family. I enjoyed seeing them lining up along many fence posts while in Venezuela a few years ago.
