After The Rain
3

A waterlogged Turkey Vulture tries to dry out after a heavy and cold Fall downpour.

Sitting on a branch overlooking the Niagara Falls gorge these birds, in the absence of the drying Sun, will leave the perch and dive into the gorge making a wide gliding loop back to the perch in an effort to air dry their feathers. When air currents are weak along the cliff they sometimes are forced to land on much lower branches since they can't gain altitude with wet flight feathers.
