Turkey Vultures are large birds with a 6 foot wingspan. There was a Turkey Vulture sitting in the big pine tree in the rain a few days ago–this may be the same bird. Or maybe not–there are lots of vultures around.

Soaring overhead. Turkey Vultures are dark brown with silvery flight feathers on its wings. The flight feathers do look like silver in this shot.
