Turkey Vultures in the fog – they look rather ominous!

Bob Harrison came across these two Turkey Vultures with their wings extended along old Highway One near Westport. Fog shrouded the air.



Turkey Vultures extend their wings to dry them in the sun, and to have the sun burn off any microbes from the carrion they eat. I suppose some rays must penetrate the fog. It's a startling sighting, to be sure!

Thanks to Bob for allowing me to share his photo with you here. We are waiting for another welcome rainstorm tonight.
