Turkey Vultures in Downtown Miami

Part of me is noting the shallow V of the wings, the dihedral position that distinguishes the Turkey Vulture, even from miles away. Part of me is wondering what great dead animal this flock was settled upon a few minutes ago. Part of me is curious where the birds are off to, whether to roost in the trees by the river or nest in the shelter of the hills.

The first Saturday in September each year is International Vulture Awareness Day. For more information, visit: https://www.vultureday.org/

Vultures are state and federally protected as a migratory bird, therefore it is unlawful to harm or kill them without a permit from the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
