Avery Island Wildlife - pam-and-edmund-mcilhenny

Turkey Vultures got their name from their red heads that are reminiscent of Wild Turkeys, but by comparing this photo with the previous two, you can see that they really don't look that much alike. This bird is shown in "horaltic pose," which allows the sun to dry its wings, warm its body, and kill bacteria.
