Proof That I'm No Bird Expert

Earlier I posted some photos of a bird I saw during a hike at Calero park this week. I identified the bird as a “hawk” – even though that was pretty much a wild guess on my part. (I’m definitely no bird expert.)

My friend Tom Clifton wrote in to set me straight. He tells me that the characteristic shape of the wings shown in the photo clearly identified the bird as a turkey vulture. I’ve corrected the labels on those pictures. Thanks, Tom!
