Saw these guys while out hiking at Black Diamond Mines.  All day I was hoping to get a good photo of the hawks and bald eagle I had seen flying overhead.  I came around the corner near the end of my hike at the top of Manhattan Canyon and there these 3 were waiting on the gate for me.

Humm. If I found three turkey vultures perched on a gate, waiting for me to go through that gate … I’d give some very careful thought about whether I REALLY wanted to go through that gate … or not. /Gary
