Incredible bird! Saw this huge bird soaring in the sky and he/she took a dive towards the road. The wing span went from centre lane – all the way to the other lane so assuming it was 6 -7 foot span. Then he/she landed on the nearby tree and I snapped this shot. I estimate the size of the bird to be 2 – 2.5 feet in height from head to tail. It is in fact a Turkey Vulture and they do range in the sizes we saw.
It was probably in the larger side of the scale although there have been cases of these incredible birds to be gigantic. They look prehistoric and well they are, since they are a direct link to the dinosaurus. Thank you for stopping by.
