I'm on my way to the garden. Really. But on my way out the door I saw three big birds beyond the garden. "Hmm. Turkeys. No, wait. Go get the glasses." Fleshy red head, black neck. Not turkeys. Check the book. Turkey Vultures! Get the camera. I know you can't see them very well here. But they were pretty spectacular. There were three. One flew pretty soon after I came out of the house. But I was able to get to within about fifty feet of them before the others flew. I was hoping to get a fairly close picture of them on the ground and I was hoping to get a picture of them on the wing (which is surprisingly difficult with the time lag of the digital camera.) So this isn't art. But it is a record.
