Turkey Vultures

Often mistaken as buzzards, Turkey Vultures are scavengers. You will most likely see Black Vultures not too far behind, especially if there is carrion.

These are one of my favorite birds that I truly have the utmost respect for.

Don’t forget International Vulture Day is September 7th. (First Saturday in September)
