Finally a bit of sun after much cold and rain and sleet and snow. My resident Turkey Vultures were doing their sun salutations this morning, enjoying a chance to soak up some warmth. I often see them sitting like this on top of a tree on a sunny winter’s day, enjoying their Vulture yoga.

Another photo of my Turkey Vultures defrosting.  For a nasty bird, they sure are beautiful in flight - I love to watch them soar overheard, catching the updrafts, gliding, wheeling, drifting, rarely needing to flap their wings.  I say nasty, but the function they perform is an important one - they clean every last speck of flesh off a carcass is no time, leaving just the carcass.
