When a thunderstorm approached recently, a number of Turkey Vultures took advantage of the gusty winds, soaring, wheeling, and skating across the sky. I derived a good deal of pleasure watching them.
If a Turkey Vulture can feel something like the human emotion of pleasure, each one must have felt it.

The Turkey Vultures will depart soon. I will enjoy watching them soar over our neighbourhood until they do.

I stepped outside to see one, three, seven, eleven Turkey vultures soaring on an unfavourable wind, trying to gain an advantage during their migration. Two turn downwind, I suppose preparing to get a head of steam up to attack the wind.
I waited almost too long to capture a soaring turkey vulture before it was obscured by a tree.
