Turkey Buzzard! - March 8th

I saw him sitting on one of my trees today. He sat and sat and sat on the tree, so I figured why not try and take a pic of him. Wouldn't you know it. Just as I took his picture, he started to fly away. I don't much care for him just sitting there, but my gosh, as he flew away very very slowly, he was quite graceful. And what a wing span. He was actually quite beautiful. On a field trip my kid took, I found out that vultures are the only ones when they fly, their wings shape up like a "V".
