Large dark hawk appearing very similar to Turkey Vulture. Birds flew from a branch and soared over hawk watch tower for10-20 minutes. Poor lighting and light markings made field marks on tail difficult to see at times. Consider this bird to be a juvenile. With patience, definitive markings on the tail were seen: broad light band on tail past feet with a dark terminal band. Feet were yellow and head was full; did not have the bald head of a TUVU. Slightly smaller than TUVU. When soaring, flight was slightly less stable than TUVU. Many have pictures. Initially identified by GBCO Hawk Watch counter, all in our group got looks with various binoculars and scopes.
