Vultures over Oak Bay

While walking along Beach Avenue in Oak Bay...
we spotted a large flock of birds in the distance.
At first, because there were so many of them, we thought they were crows.
But as they flew closer it was obvious they were too large to be crows. Instead it began to look like a congregation of eagles.
But then, as they got closer still, it was apparent that these weren't eagles at all. These were Turkey Vultures.A very rare sight to see so many in one area. Within about five minutes they had all dispersed leaving just a clear blue sky.
