Black Vulture Soaring

Photo of black vulture soaring

Seen from below, black vultures in flight tend to hold their wings horizontally (not in a shallow V), with the wingtips stretching somewhat forward. The wings are mostly black, with a white patch near the outer end of the wing; the tail is short. They usually alternate between a series of three to four flaps and soaring.
