Your guess is correct - Turkey Vultures do use the early morning sun to warm up -- a form of thermoregulation. Roger's good pictures (here and elsewhere) are good illustrations of the appropriate poses. They (and storks) are also known to poop on their own feet in hot weather to let the evaporation cool the blood in their feet and thus lower their body temperature. Yet another use for the UV rays of the sun for sterilization!
Penolta, thank you for the information rather than just my guess.
