The following photos were taken at Turkey Point in Elk Neck State Park, MD, on October 1st, 2005. These birds did not appear to be migrating- they were flying on a thermal without any real movement southward while we watched. A bald eagle was flying with them too.
The next bird was also at Turkey Point, but on December 27th, 2005. It was warming up by extending its wings in the sunlight.
