Driving on 78 West this evening I viewed an impressive group of vultures kettling(?) just to the South of South mountain.
There must have been 150 turkey vultures and black vultures soaring and flapping together fairly low in a thermal. This was close to sunset.
Pretty cool. If I wasn't driving I would have studied the group to see if a straggler was in there, like an osprey or eagle. I've seen other large groups of vultures in the general vicinity but not this big.
