Over the last few weeks, I've seen two groups of 7 - 10 birds meandering westward while sitting in my 33rd floor office.

They fly at a high altitude and appear quite large, with dark colouring. They are much larger than the Red Tailed Hawks that hangout on the building tops across from me.

Could it be the Golden Eagle? They are known to migrate across the city around November in groups about the size I saw.

Any thoughts?

Wow, I have no idea!

Did you notice a red head on these birds? If so, they could be migrating Turkey Vultures.

Perhaps one of our readers may know what these birds might be.
