Turkey Vulture


Turkey Vulture (Cathartes aura)

The Turkey Vulture is a fascinating visitor to P.E.I.. Although this vulture now nests in Nova Scotia, none have been documented to nest here on the Island. They do however visit during migrating season, and sometimes during the summer months looking for carrion. Even though they are large, their talons and beak are comparitively weak for their size, making them poor at capturing live prey, or even tearing fresh meat.

An amazing soarer, these raptors circle high overhead on thermals searching out potential meals using their incredibly keen sense of smell.
