Emily Marino, glad you were able to see these beautiful birds. Down here we usually see them everywhere interchangeably with the t.v's

I got to see these beauties for the first time last month while I was in North Carolina for the holidays! Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures but it was a treat to see them catching thermals with turkey vultures! Great shot!
