Turkey Vulture Sunning

Also this morning, I walked off the road that runs along the field and up a rutted driveway that leads to an abandoned house and an overgrown, weedy area, and found two Black Vultures and one Turkey Vulture all perched on the tops of separate poles. One Black Vulture and the Turkey Vulture sat with their backs to the sun and with wings held out to warm them. The Turkey Vulture, in particular, looked much more impressive than one usually does, almost handsome, its dull black feathers and red head standing out clearly against a blue sky.
