Hi everyone - This is my second bird posting trying to identify birds after travelling to Florida. This one looks like a bird of prey very large wings grey / dark grey with striped edging ??? If you can help please.

Possibly a Black Vulture but very difficult to tell from this picture.

The shape fits and I guess you'd know if it was Bald Eagle (with a very distinctive white head and tail)

Yes - i zoomed in on the picture and it does seem to fit with being a Black Vulture
Thanks for your help.

Oddly, I remember seeing Black Vultures when I visited the Kennedy Space Center a few years ago. Florida has some wonderful wildlife.
