2019—Black Vulture

Black Vultures are very similar to the Turkey Vultures that I’m used to seeing where I live but without the red skin on their faces. The gray skin makes them somehow less repulsive than Turkey Vultures. This Black Vulture just landed near our blind in South Texas. The vultures compete with Crested Caracaras for carrion and road kill.
