On the way down the Sunshine Coast, we passed this turkey vulture ripping at something on the yellow line. By the time I'd braked, it was far overhead.
I hadn't seen one before, at least, close enough to identify. But even at this distance, the distinguishing features are evident: the red, bald head, the two-toned underside of the wings; black wing linings and dark grey flight feathers. I noticed the way they hold the first four wing feathers (primaries) separated from the rest and each other. Later, I compared them with eagles' wings in flight: the eagles' primaries are separated, but blend into the others at the inner end.
There were two; one was waiting in the trees. After we had been stopped for a while, one of them returned to the road. We aimed the cameras, and a car came around the bend. Goodbye, vultures!
We would have waited more, but the pair circled a couple of times, then headed east, over the cliffs and out of sight.
