Another excellent photo. I watched (and tried to photgraph) about a dozen Turkey Vultures last night before sunset. No good pix, tho.

Nice shot, dawn. Look at those wings. Beautiful.

That's a gorgeous photo! I love the way you can see through his feathers.

I tagged you, Dawn. No worries if you don't do tags, but I don't know that many bloggers yet! :P

Dawn said...

thank you ladies, I love the huge birds, they are amazing. Sorry about your photos Sandy.

Not my favorite birds but they serve their purpose. I think I'm always disappointed when I think I see a large hawk flying and it's just a turkey vulture :( This is a great photo, though.

Beautiful pic Dawn.

That is some wingspan!

I thought they were hawks when I first spent the winter here but knowing that they aren't hasn't diminished my enjoyment of them. They fly really high sometimes. I love looking at them back lit.
I think they're the Florida state bird, or maybe it's the pelican.
