Turkey Vulture

Observation details

This is a conservative count. We saw that many rising together on a thermal. Plus other scattered individuals and pairs throughout the park, both before and after seeing the big flock, which we did not add to make certain that none were counted twice. This is the largest number we've ever seen in this area this time of year. They appear to be back very early.
