Yup, the wingspan for Turkey Vultures is about 6
feet...hmmm...about 1.82 meters. On the ground they're an ungainly, awkward unpretty bird but in the air they're the masters of the currents and sky, being able to soar without flapping, for sometimes hours at a time! I LOVE watching them in flight!

Thanks, Lynn! I think they're especially beautiful in the air---nothing equals their ability to soar for so long, floating like fluff on the wind.

Good shot of this guy! A lot of people think turkey vultures are ugly but I think they're beautiful.

About minnesotamom


Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)
