First view of turkey vulture on neighbor's home sunning himself

Turkey Vulture on Chimney of Aloha Home

We live on the side of Cooper Mountain in Aloha, and today while sitting in my home office a turkey vulture landed on the chimney of the home next door. I took my camera out onto a balcony out side of my office and began taking pictures. The vulture sunned himself for a while, then flew down circling our cul-de-sac at about 3 or 4 feet from the ground, then went up onto the house on the other side of my neighbor's. Then it repeated the fly over and returned to the chimney. After a few minutes, it dropped down onto the roof, walked across the roof to the edge. After looking over the edge of the roof for a while, it flew down into the garden, picked something up, flew back to the roof for a moment, then flew off down into the forest.

As ugly as they are, these are amazing birds.
