These birds are very common in our area. We often will sight them flying overhead and circling around the sky. We often see them out at the lake or the state park. They are very large birds with dark black bodies and a red turkey like head. They are not the most beautiful birds but they are pretty impressive in terms of their size and wingspan. We once saw 7 of these large birds circling and landing on the ledge of a tall building across the street from where we live.
