Adult. Long, wide wings pushed forward a little and held level, small head, short triangular tail. Rapid wing beats with a deep down stroke and a very shallow up stroke barely rising above the body, giving it that frantic 'I'm afraid I'm going to fall out of the sky' look. Entirely dark bird, except for silver patches at the outer primaries.

Turkey Vultures have longer tails, light remiges rather than just the outer primary patches, slower wing flaps with more curved wings, hold their wings in a dihedral and not pushed forward.
