Pictures of turkey vultures (Cathartes aura). The turkey vulture is the most common and widely distributed vulture, ranging from Southern Canada to South America.

They have a wingspan of up to six feet. When seeking food they may sour or fly low to the ground. They feed mainly on carrion. The turkey vulture forages by small, an ability that is uncommon in the avian world.
