Vultures: Cathartidae

“Vultures are great blackish Eagle-like birds, usually seen soaring in wide circles high in the heavens. Their naked heads are so small for the size of the bird that at a great distance they sometimes appear to be almost headless. Hawks and Eagles have larger, well-proportioned heads.”

To A Skylark

Hail to thee, blithe spirit!
Bird though never wert –
That from heaven or near it
Pourest thy full heart
In profuse strains of umpremeditated art.
