Comments:
Seen flying right above my car as I was driving east on Elizabeth Ave. (so no picture). It was very low (so low that it defecated on my windshield!) and had a bald head so I was shocked to see a vulture. I grew up in southern Ontario so I know turkey vulture well - this had a greyish head but it was definitely a vulture. I looked it up in NA Birds and it seems it was likely a black vulture which is normally found in the SE United States.
