Artist's Description

The Turkey Vulture is the most widespread of the New World vultures, a large bird that floats on air currents, lazily circling above. They are common throughout the Americas (both north and south) – nature’s garbage crew. Not the prettiest bird, not graceful on the ground, these birds are beautiful when flying or sitting still with the sun on their iridescent feathers (well, that may be just my opinion).

Turkey Vultures, sometimes called Turkey Buzzards, may live up to 18 years in the wild and almost double that in captivity.

I photographed this bird April 28, 2012, in Green Lane, PA, USA.
