Turkey Vulture, Eagle-sized blackish bird

Turkey Vulture

Spotted this guy on the side of the road on my way home, naturally had to pull over and take this picture.

Interesting Fact:  They can travel up to 200 miles in a day.  Turkey vultures have an extraordinary sense of smell. They have been known to be able to smell carrion from over a mile away which is very unique in the bird world.

 

F/5.6, 1/500, ISO 280
