Initiate Death Eater by shadowfire-x Initiate Death Eater by shadowfire-x
We're getting into the thick of the migration, so we have a lot of turkey vultures moving through/leaving the park right now. Out of the 526 photos I took this morning, this is one of the 18 that survived the chopping block. I was really pleased that this juvenile (gray head, bluish eyes) turkey vulture just remained fairly calmly perched on a power pole even though I was sitting in my car only 40 feet away at most. It didn't even fly off when I put the car in gear to leave. Then again, given the white spatters on its wings - likely the result of a mobbing attack - maybe it'd had enough for the day and was thumbing its metaphorical nose at me by staying put.
