Turkey Vulture at the River

I startled this vulture as he was feeding on a dead fish washed up at a boat landing on the Wando River. This, of course, startled me. Vultures are abundant near Charleston, SC, but this is the first one I’ve seen with his toes in the water.

Similar to the Black Vultures, the Turkey Vulture is elegant in flight.

He swooped up to a nearby dock waiting for me to move on.
