Description

Turkey vulture

The Turkey Vulture has a body length of 24 - 25 inches, a wingspan of 5 - 6 feet. The Turkey Vulture is one of the few birds of prey that is able to use its sense of smell to locate food. Turkey Vultures are almost entirely carrion eaters and feed on medium-sized dead animals. These birds use their sight and acute sense of smell to find food during low level soaring flights.

The Turkey Vulture's scientific name comes from the Greek word kathartes, representing a cleanser or purifier and refers to the scavenging nature of the bird. Aurouá is the Latinized word for the name Mexican Indians gave to vultures. The common name refers to the red skin on the head and dark body feathers that resemble the Wild Turkey. Turkey Vultures have been called Buzzards, John Crow, Red-necked Buzzard, and Carrion Crows.
