And then came the vulture, a Turkey Vulture like the ones I saw a few days ago. It was by itself and it swooped fairly low over the yard a few times. You can see the red head in these photos.

The white spots in front of the eye are tubercles which are common on Turkey Vulures. You can also see the opening through the bill which may be its nostrils.

The vulture flew so close that I couldn’t get the entire bird into this photo.
