Turkey Vultures

As I drove on Route 10 from Canjoharie to Sharon Springs on my way to visit my mom I noticed a flock of large birds roosting in the trees along a fence line. As I drove by I saw they were Turkey Vultures and there must have been close to 30 of them. I stopped my car, turned around and went back to snap a couple of pictures. I counted 28 vultures in this photo and there were more back in the trees, a few across the road, a couple circling and, of course, a few feeding.

There was a dead bloated deer carcass in the ditch that attracted them.

The next morning it was foggy as I made my return trip, but they were still there; looking spooky in the fog.
