Sharp capture, Jer, and very nice in monochrome

I saw one of these bad boys at a recent trip to a birds of prey centre, but not in flight. They're quite majestic with those huge wings spread out. Quite beautiful, in they're own way...

I was simply walking across a parking lot when this character flew right over me. I often seen birds that may be like this one off in the distance, but this the first time I can remember seeing one close up. I've no notion what it is.

Great capture, Jer, that's a Turkey Vulture or as they are called around my neck of the woods just a plain Ole "Buzzard". Sometimes they can be confused with a Black Vulture but the Turkey Vulture is larger than the Black Vulture and can navigate the air currents majestically. The way to distinguish the birds apart in the air is the way the Turkey Vulture sails with its wings in a slight V or dihedral for stability where as the Black Vulture flaps a lot more and doesn't sail or glide as well. They hang out together.

Thanks guys for looking and for the kind words. When I saw the thing's head, I thought "buzzard", but the majestic wing spread is just not something I associate with a "Buzzard."
