Found on fence post along gravel road between forested area and field.
Spotted at San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge near refuge office.
Yes Fyn but I thought it might be a misused term like in the song "Ol' turkey buzzard..." oops maybe before your time.
Hey, not all birds can live an exciting life of pretty colors and exciting foreign travels to tropical locations.
Buzzards are a different group of raptors than Vultures.
Would this also be called 'Turkey buzzard' or is that something else?
Boring?! TylerGraden take that back! ;) Just kidding! This is definitely a turkey vulture. Looks to be a beautiful old bird due to the white warts on his face and bleached feathers! I have had more fun watching turkey vultures feed on a carcass than watching some other birds! I love their hierarchical behavior and how socially smart they are!I love this picture with the warning sign below! Great shot - sweet bird!
Great Picture. As common and "boring" as these birds are, they're pretty interesting if you give them a chance. I believe it's a Turkey Vulture though, as LindaKing pointed out.
