Black vs juvenile Turkey Vulture

8 posts in this topic

I tagged these two guys as black vultures first, but I am thinking that the pattern on the head does not extend down to mid-neck as it does on my other black vulture pictures. Could these be juvenile turkey vultures?

Definitely Black Vultures. Also notice the gray primary showing on one of the wings.

I've never noticed a juvenile vulture plumage... It must not be significantly different (past fledgling).
