Turkey Vulture

Cathartes aura


This particular vulture was first seen roosting on the roof of our house in Princeton, NJ. It then took to the trees.


Turkey Vultures are common around open areas such as roadsides, suburbs, farm fields, countryside, and food sources such as landfills, trash heaps, and construction sites. On sunny days, look for them aloft as early as 9 a.m.; in colder weather and at night they roost on poles, towers, dead trees, and fence posts.
