Black Vulture

The bird show at Featherfest on Friday afternoon featured a hawk, a falcon, an owl, a Kookaburra, and this magnificent Black Vulture. Featherfest is held each year in Galveston to coincide with Spring migration activity along the Gulf coast. They get in expert guides and well known ornithologists and run field trips for 4 days. I was tapped to run the book booth on Friday so I got to chat with birders all day and see the bird show again this year. I made it out of the vendor area without buying anything. I should get a medal of some kind for that. (Photo taken with my cheapie Motorola dumbphone.)
