Yesterday at 4:40 I saw a group of 16 Turkeys Vultures flying south directly over my house (near Watershed Park in Olympia). They disappeared to the south, heading on a bearing toward the Olympia Airport. Flight was very direct. At 4:45 I saw a group that totaled 313 Turkey Vultures that passed directly overhead on the same flight line as the earlier group. Three separate parts of this group, involving nearly all 313 birds, stopped to circle in 3 different areas before continuing on. When not circling the birds in the large group had a very direct flight and were easily tallied.
