Turkey Vulture

Cathartes aura


mixed farmland, forest, and rangeland. They are particularly noticeable along roadsides and at landfills. In south Florida common in suburban and urban areas.


A solitary vulture keeping it's distance from the group of black vultures near by. It seemed to be foraging along the shore vegetation and dried seaweed but not on carrion . I observed it eat a couple of small things (maybe invertebrates, or small mollusks, or perhaps bits of mud/clay for minerals, not sure)
