Hawk or Vultures

I admire these birds circling as I'm driving down #3 highway near Port Glasgow, but I wonder if they are Hawks or Vultures.

How can I tell from a distance?

Hi Paul, thanks for sending us your picture. I travel through the Port Glasgow area quiet frequently and have seen both Vultures and Hawks, but for me, the best indicator of which I am seeing, is to watch for a "wobble" in flight, which tells me that I'm seeing Turkey Vultures.
