Very warm temperatures with highs in the low 80's. Walking out to my truck I noticed two male Orchard Orioles low in a maple tree. Decided to briefly bird the nearby vicinity and start a checklist. Many of the local migrant breeders are in on territory.

Observations

  1. Number observed: 1
  2. new world vulture sp.

    Number observed: 1

    Comments: Likely a BLACK VULTURE. Very distant fleeting view of a soaring, large vulture (bigger than Red-tailed that flew in nearby vicinity). The bird never flapped its wings once in the 30 seconds or so in which I viewed it. Wings held completely straight, not dihedral like Turkey Vulture. Long "finger-like" primaries. Unfortunately I could not gather any field marks other than overall structure and will let this pass as a "new world vulture sp." The bird eventually drifted off to a mere speck but always had it's back to me. GISS just seemed best for Vulture, and not Eagle. I've been seeing Turkey Vulture here more frequently and its only a matter of time before a Black soars by.
