While taking pics of the flags at my local car wash, Show "Flag" I noticed a condor flying high above.
I had the wrong lens on, a 28mm, but I took a few anyway.

No condors here, but plenty of black vultures and turkey buzzards. Some ranchers will kill a black vulture on sight since they are notorious for liking to eat the placenta left over when a calf is born. Sometimes in a feeding frenzy, they will devour the calf too. Illegal to kill them, but they are still killed for this reason.
They are very graceful when in the air though. This is a turkey vulture or turkey buzzard. It has a red head and is generally bigger than a black vulture. Turkey vultures are absolutely harmless. Wings are different too as a black vulture has a distinctive V look to it's wings when in flight.

Your scavenger was much closer than mine.
Not the prettiest of birds, but they serve a valuable purpose.

Those are great shots of the Black Vultures, Ricky. I appreciate your telling us about the differences between the two types of vultures. Turkey vultures are what I'm more familiar with, though within the last couple of years I have noticed more Black Vultures around - though I never see any this close and certainly not in my backyard!

Still Playing with my new Canon SX30 IS (35x zoom)
Rather a captive audience..... in the garden.... not like these vultures etc...

The quality of this new camera + its 35x zoom range, is giving some interesting results...
