Species of the day

The Western Turkey Vulture, Cathartes aura meridionalis, is considered fairly common in the Southern Arizona and New Mexico. They are found in small groups either circling or sitting atop fence posts and in trees, generally on the lookout for some that has passed away and would make a tasty treat. These were hanging out at Amigos del Cielo Airpark, waiting for someone to go flying so they could compare their thermaling skills with some light sport weight shift control aircraft.
