Wanamassa Birds

I frequently stroll the streets of Wanamassa, NJ, with camera at the ready to take pictures of birds.

Turkey Vulture Passes Over Front Yard

Denise was out walking with David. She called home excited about a couple of huge birds circling above their heads. Then she called again. She was on our street and the birds were right over our house. So, out I went with the camera and sure enough they were turkey vultures. We get a lot of them around here, but it is rare I get a shot as good as these.

The bird flew very close to the angle of the sun, so I was a little worried about tracking it. But I did and as it passed over the trees in our front yard, I got these rather pleasing shots. I'm sure it was the angle of the sun that made the lighter feathers look so white.
