Although I grew up near the Scarborough Bluffs I do not remember ever seeing a Turkey Vulture here. One had to drive to Rattlesnake Point near Milton to do that. These days there are many Turkey Vultures in our area during the warmer months. Of the hawk-like birds, only Eagles surpass Turkey Vultures in wingspan: 80 inches to 67 inches.
We have seen vultures here during all three of this week’s walks.

A few weeks ago I noticed these two large birds high up in the sky circling over a nearby ravine. They appeared regularly around the noon for several days. The outline of the bodies look like they could be turkey vultures. I haven’t seen the pair lately.
Thanks for the photos of the beautiful warblers and other singing birds.
