Vulture and Heron

After the rain this morning I got out for a couple hours of birding. It was a pleasant morning -- overcast and cool. It was also very wet. I took this picture of the dead tree at the end of Meadowheath. On the right side you can see a Turkey Vulture drying its wings.

The second picture is of a Green Heron on the small creek by Meadowheath. These are common summer residents here and many are nesting in our trees. Usually you don't see them with their necks stretched out like this. Their more common posture makes it look like their head comes directly out of their body, and their folded neck is hidden by feathers.
