Friday afternoon (10/21) I photographed a turkey vulture circling the Edmonds marsh as it was flying northbound over town. It was overcast and all I got were silhouette shots. At the time I thought it was some kind of hawk or possibly a juvenile bald eagle as I had never seen a turkey vulture in Edmonds.
I did not identify the bird until I got home and lightened the photos on the computer. The head appeared to be all gray, making it a first year (July-November) juvie according to Sibley's.
