Turkey/Vulture/Buzzard needs a Bath

Around here we all call them Turkey Buzzards but I have been told that is not correct they are Turkey Vultures. So to be safe I use both Buzzard & Vulture.

I have no idea how they can get so dirty but I often see them in need of some sort of wash job. Like me I think this character is having a hard time getting his act together on this morning.

I think I better stretch before I go Hunting



Some mornings its just hard to get started



One more little push and then I enjoy the sun for a while



Now that is better, well worth the effort

I know what Gazander means.

I am running out of words.

Just saying great shots doesn't really do the pics justice.

You are an inspiration to us all.

This bird obviously got pooped on in a roost. It is letting the sun sterilize its feathers.

FYI you are correct that it is a vulture, and not a buzzard. The Buzzard is a European hawk, which was confused with the Turkey Vulture (so named because it has a bare head like the Turkey, whose name is another story) by early immigrantss who couldn't tell the difference. But then, they didn't have the benefit of binoculars or telephoto lenses.

Good pics, as usual.
