Bird Photos / Black Vulture

Last Update: 5/7/2015

We saw two Black Vultures flying near our vacation condo building while we waited for the bus one evening in the summer of 2005.

Note the silver looking color on the outer parts of the wings. The similar Turkey Vulture has a red head, and has two toned wings. The fronts of Turkey Vulture wings are dark, and the outer parts are light, making it look like the bird is much smaller than it really is.

We saw the next birds at Cape May State Park, NJ in October, 2006.
