Re: Big flock of turkey vultures

I was up at Eaton Canyon this morning from about 9:20 until 10:50 a.m. There was a slow and steady movement of TVs, but most were very distant above the snow- covered foothills.  Saw 64 total. There may have been a small group of 4-5 Swainson's among them, but the birds were too far to be sure.

Hi All,

Today (11:30am) I’m just seeing a few TVs drifting along a line at about Orange Grove at almost treetop level. Turkey Vultures are pretty adept at moving in less than ideal winds like this. No sign of higher birds so far which would suggest good migratory conditions to our south (and birds in the pipeline).
