Turkey Vulture soaring overhead
My wife and I take regular walks on Nickel Beach, Port Colbourne, Ontario. This morning, we observed 6 large birds, 2 of them eating a dead fish, near the waterline ..... the others airborne.
With very strong winds from the south, the birds took flight and soared above us for about 20-30 minutes. We now believe they were Turkey Vultures because of the dark/light patterns on the underside of their wings, almost exactly like one of the pictures in the Turkey Vulture selection on this site ... though the birds we saw didn't appear to have the red heads.
Sorry ..... no pictures of our own to post here. Beautiful creatures.Thanks for your submission to our website, Bob & Bev, it is nice to get reports of wild birds that are thriving in Ontario
