Artist's Description

Not exactly a poster bird of beauty, the turkey vulture certainly has a distinctive look. I came across a half dozen of these beauties feeding on a carcass along side a farm road. They were engaged enough in their feeding frenzy that they did not seem to mind my pulling over and taking several close up shots.

Turkey Vultures are large dark birds with long, broad wings. Bigger than other raptors except eagles and condors, they have long “fingers” at their wingtips and long tails that extend past their toe tips in flight. When soaring, Turkey Vultures hold their wings slightly raised, making a ‘V’ when seen head-on.

Taken near Marseilles, Illinois (US) with a Canon 7D DSLR and 100-400 mm Lens.
