Turkey Vultures (1 of 1)-60-72Turkey Vulture in Flight Over the Tanque Verde Wash — Image by kenne

Late afternoon
Brings the big birds
Circling in for a landing
In the dead trees
By the Tanque Verde Wash. 

Their stay will be brief
Before warming up
In the morning sun
Before liftoff, circling
Gaging the currents.

Each day for most of March
The turkey vultures return
In their journey north
To their northern home
Only to return next fall.
