Turkey Vulture makes an overhead pass

This picture was taken back in September but I fully expect to see these again very soon as they return for the season. Their faces won’t win any beauty pageants but they are amazing adept at soaring in the sky.

You will often see Turkey Vultures high in the sky in large groups – appropriately called a ‘wake’ – looking for their next meal. They feed on carrion they find lying around dead like rabbits, prairie dogs and such and are believed to be able to smell the dead animals up to a mile away.
