Turkey vultures look imposing, even with all that flight hardware tucked away:
However, I think this is a low-status bird, because those splashes on the left wing look a lot like bird crap…
Taken with the DSC-H5, zoomed all the way tight with the 1.7× teleadapter, handheld on a lovely sunny day.
Update: Because I write these posts a few days in advance of their appearance, I didn’t know yesterday’s weather would look like this:
That’s a screenshot from a Raspberry Pi streaming camera I set up so a friend in North Carolina could gloat.
I suppose the vultures huddle in a tree, as do the turkeys, and await better flying conditions.
Enjoy the sun while it shines!

Can you describe the streaming cam a bit? How are you maintaining security in the wilds of the Internet? Just curious!
I’ll write that up in a bit, but it’s just a V2 Pi camera and the streameye program.
