I love to watch Black Vultures, at least from afar. They aren’t that attractive but are skillful flyers and do a fabulous job keeping dead stuff cleaned up. I was happy to spot this pair perched high in a pine tree.
It turns out as I looked around and heard the distinctive flap-flap-flap of Vultures taking off that there were dozens of them, sitting in and flying around a stand of pine trees.
The cloudy sky wasn’t a great asset to these images, but you can see how the birds arranged themselves.
This last image conveys the massive size of the trees and some of the soaring that was going on.
