Re: buzzard -- Turkey Vulture

He or she looked kind of pensive or sad. Guess they had been feeding him
fresh meat. :-) I think it's a turkey buzzard, but I'm not sure.



You think in the right direction, but this bird is usually called
a Turkey Vulture. One of the few birds with an
excellent sense of smell. Nice closeup!
