Perspective

These magnificent birds are typically seen soaring on warm air thermals allowing them to spend long periods of time air-borne with little effort.  Also known as Buzzards, the Turkey Vulture is a scavenger and feeds mostly on Carrion.

I trust that everything in life happens for a reason, even if we are not wise enough to see it.

Great capture! That guy looks huge up there!!

They are the ugliest birds, but I'm sure it's not their fault. We have tons of them where I live.

Great shot of that necessary bird! When I was at the wildlife rehab center, I was privileged to watch surgery performed on one of these critters - to remove a foot that had died and withered. Fascinating!

The first turkey vulture I every saw was when I was driving to Florida in the mid 1970`s. Now they are a common sight to see in Ontario, Canada. They are ugly up close.

This bird might not be as visually appealing as the bald eagle you recently posted, but it's every bit as magnificent.
Sharp and great shot of a big bird. I find the cable isolator funny looking like a short person with a blue hat, two small hands and one large boot. Great capture. :-)

I just found out that you've moved (blog)!

Though I know they serve a purpose, this is my least favorite bird. Fabulous shot.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving the nice comment about my cat picture (the two unlikely friends), and about our outside remodeling. :-)

Awesome shot! Love the blue sky background!

You captured the Turkey Buzzard so very well. He is a unique critter and as you said most often seen soaring in the air, quite gracefully I might add.
Happy Sunday!

I saw a gathering of about 20 the other day -- it was an amazing sight. Great capture, Daniel. :)
