A swarm of Turkey Vultures leaving their overnight roost. The birds are circling in a thermal updraft trying to gain enough altitude to begin the day’s search for food. The roost appears to be located just to the east of DART’s Bush Turnpike Station and just south of President George Bush Turnpike in Richardson, Texas.
