black vultures or turkey vultures? help!

I'd assume those are turkey vultures, since I haven't seen black vultures in the area (that I know of).

Were they in this tree or this one? I'm guessing the latter.

These are turkey vultures, judging by the pale lower edge of the wings that is visible on the third bird from the left. Black vultures have all-black wings below except for some pale silvery feathers at the very tips of the wings, whereas turkey vultures have mostly dark wings with a contrasting, light grey lower edge that runs the length of the wings.

I hope this helps.

This is a beautiful photo by the way. I love your blog.
