Sometimes called a buzzard, a vulture is a bird of prey that

feeds on dead animals, acting as nature’s garbage disposers to help keep our environment clean and control the spread of diseases. You can see turkey vultures and black vultures soaring in the sky as they search for food. With an excellent sense of sight and smell, vultures can find a dead animal from a mile or more away and can finish a carcass in a matter of minutes.
