Water - Bird

This is a Turkey Vulture. Together with the Pacific it looks quite grand, no?



For more water from all over the world visit Watery Wednesdays and enjoy.

The bird certainly is majestic making me think Aileni is correct that it's an eagle. :-)

The way he holds his primaries, I would say turkey vulture. They are magnificent in flight even though there eating habits may be a turn of for some.

Great photo Bim. Yes Stanborough Park is just about a mile from the Welwyn Garden City mall, down by the Police Headquarters. Worth a visit.

Nicely captured. I always see turkey vultures against a blue sky around hundreds of trees, so this is quite an interesting difference.

Spectacular! Just breathtaking. Turkey vultures are almost as majestic as large raptors in flight. And the expanse of water for a background it's easy to imagine this is an eagle looking for fish.

Grand, indeed! Very wonderful scene!

Carletta said...

Beautiful shot!
Turkey vultures aren't pretty up close but they are still magnificent in the air! You've captured this one beautifully!
