Black Vulture

These Black Vultures served as our Texas welcoming committee. We visited Ray Roberts State Park on 17 March. I am surprised that the birds perched with their toes hanging straight out past the edge of the light-post. A more centered perch might give them better balance. Perhaps when they flush, they push off with their toes, and thereby attain airspeed. Last year I posted a note on Black Vultures from this same location.
