Black Vultures and Sun Dogs

At 5:00 P.M. yesterday evening, I spotted a small, swirling and whirling flock of 12 Black Vultures over the Blue Ridge Elementary School, located on Route 9 near Mannings, Jefferson County. This is the largest single group of Black Vultures I can remember seeing in the Eastern Panhandle.

And at 5:40 P.M., a faint yet distinctive sun dog (or parahelia) was visible in the sky over Martinsburg. I generally associate this atmospheric phenomena with much colder temperatures.
