“Better have as king a vulture advised by swans
Than a swan advised by vultures.”
A pair of turkey vultures in their treetop perch are seen against the bright blue spring sky as an April sunset approaches along the Ironton Rail Trail.
I often see many groups of perched turkey vultures in the same group of trees along the trail near sundown.
The trail loops more than nine miles through Whitehall Township, the Borough of Coplay and North Whitehall Township in Pennsylvania.
