This is  a bird I saw almost every day. But not this close. Mostly in the air.

  4. ...hmmm...they look the same in the beautiful tropics as they do in Cincy! ;-) I always love seeing these birds and their very cool faces.

  6. Hehe! Turkey vultures are not very pretty but they DO help clean up our environment. Very good photo!

  7. Nice shot of the Turkey Vulture on the beach. I get to watch these guys ride the currents daily here in Northern California. They are amazing birds and lucky for us there are a health number of them to clean up.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
