turkey vultures

we saw them twice

their winged magnificence and

yellow-hooked beaks

circling high in autumn sky

en route to a winter home

Bird migration is the theme of this week’s Haikai challenge. Not being a bird expert, I can only guess that the vultures I saw lately were on their way south, but it seems to be an explanation for their recent appearance. Turkey vultures are listed as birds on the move in Ontario at this time of year.
