If you look carefully, you can just make out the white at just the end of the wings, and a rather short stubby tail. Turkey Vultures have longer tails, hold their wings at a very obvious wobbly "V" shape , and the underside of the wings have white all the way to the body,
not just at the ends. Very easy to ID once you get the field marks.
