Not An Eagle And Not A Hawk

Many times people see vultures like this Black Vulture soaring in the skies in the company of hawks or eagles and assume that they too are a type of hawk or eagle. It's easy to understand because they are similar in size. Although a Black Vulture is not an eagle or hawk, it is considered a raptor or bird of prey.

I'm familiar with the Turkey Vultures but not these kind.

The Black Vulture numbers have greatly increased here over the last 20 years. They have prominent silver wingtips showing while in flight and don't tip their wings upward while soaring the way tv's do.
