Five beautiful birds soaring

Hi, I saw at least five beautiful birds peacefully soaring over my apartment building in north Peterborough. I couldn't identify them.

They flew very close to the roof of our building, so I saw they were totally black on their underside.

I have seen a hawk fly by my balcony holding a baby squirrel in her talons so I know what they look like and it wasn't hawks.

I thought maybe they were turkey vultures, but from the pics here, you can see a lighter color underneath. These were 100% black underneath.

Any idea of what they may be? I've seen them twice now. Once over the river at our zoo and this time near my place which is a bit further from the zoo.

They are a very large bird.

At any rate they were very peaceful to watch.
