Turkey Vultures, Cathartes aura, are common across much of North America. Those that breed in cooler regions of the continent migrate south to spend the Winter. You are more likely to see Turkey Vultures along country roads, eating road kill (animals accidently killed by cars and trucks). They almost never catch living prey, preferring the dead which they locate using their excellent sense of smell.
Hope you are having a great week!
