SKYWATCH FRIDAY, SEASON 4, EPISODE 45

I think this is a Turkey Vulture and thought I saw the red tell-tale head, but he was a bit too far up for me to be sure. Lots of wispy clouds in the sky that day.

Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Louise and Sylvia for hosting SkyWatch Friday.

Vultures can be so creepy! We have a lot around here and sometimes they circle over the golf course when we're playing. I want to shout... we're not dead yet! But we do seem to have an inordinate amount of roadkill down here and they do help with it. SO I guess they have their place.

It's a nice capture for the skywatch. Happy Friday!

Fabulous capture, Denise. He looks such a powerful bird silhouetted against that lovely blue sky.

A lovely photo. I saw a red kite last weekend, but he soared away before I could get a photo.
