Turkey Vulture ( Juvenile )

Why are hairdressers never late for work?

Because they know all the short cuts!

Interesting Fact: Outside of the breeding season, Turkey Vultures form roosts of dozens to a hundred individuals. When Turkey Vultures court, pairs perform a “follow flight” display where one bird leads the other through twisting, turning, and flapping flights for a minute or so, repeated over periods as long as 3 hours. Migrating flocks can number in the thousands. At carcasses, several Turkey Vultures may gather but typically only one feeds at a time, chasing the others off and making them wait their turn. Despite their size, Turkey Vultures are often driven off by smaller Black Vultures, Crested Caracaras, Zone-tailed Hawks, and other species.

    • They look very similar when they are juvenile. He was actually there with his mom, brothers and sisters they were all not full grown yet. Only the mother was big. It just looks full grown because I have nothing in this photo to compare the size to. Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the interest in my post. Happy Blogging! ๐Ÿ™‚
