Nice Job GW. I just heard on the news that a plane hit a turkey buzzard while landing. Did some damage to the windshield. How close were they? I'm thinking that may be the best way for me to get BIF photos.:-)

You're right Stevie,
the pilot was lucky it didn't kill him! also, that's what cause the jet to crasha couple weeks ago where the pilot landed in the river. scary how often they get too close. fortunately this plane was a good hundred feet higher than the Turkey Vulture.

Anyone care to guess what Little Bird is?

It is not an eagle
It is not a Turkey Vulture
It is not a Caracara
It is not a Condor
And it isn't a Snail Kite or some other kind of Hawk

So what is it? :?:

You said all the birds I would have guessed. Guess I'll have to wait and see what others come up with.:?

Well Pen,
I thought it was a Turkey Vulture, there was about a hundred of them about 75 yards away on the bank of the lake taking turns flying around and coming back in. I was thinking what looks like white on the beak is most likely yellow with the bright sunshine blowing out the color
:-?

I knew it wasn't a condor - wing color is wrong. I'm clueless as to what it actually is, though. What is it?
