One thing I am doing today is admiring this Turkey Vultures’ graceful soaring.
A Turkey Vulture rides the wind, just before a thunderstorm arrives.
While reviewing photos I came across this photo of a Turkey Vulture tilting, riding the wind.
We have looked forward to the Turkey Vultures’ return. It is good to see this first one return, and we look forward to watching them tilt and soar for the next several months.

Tracking the Turkey Vultures on as they wheeled and soared on this windy day was difficult. I was fortunate to capture this image.
Two Turkey Vultures return to their roost ahead of an evening thundershower. Such graceful birds, it is a pleasure to watch then soar, rock, and wheel on the wind.
Seventeen Turkey Vultures greet the new day.
As one Turkey Vulture glides overhead, another banks vertically.
What was going on? Aggression? Play? Collision avoidance? For the hell of it? Impossible for me to say; my attention was on the viewfinder. More importantly I’m not a Turkey Vulture.
The first major flight of Turkey Vultures is a most welcome sign that spring is here.
