Caption: PROPERTY RELEASED. Turkey vulture (Cathartes aura) perched on a rock. This vulture lives throughout North and South America, and mostly feeds on carrion. It spends most of the day soaring and circling in the air, and locates its food by its excellent sense of smell. It can grow to a length of around 70 centimetres. Photographed on the Falkland Islands, where this bird is one of the most common birds of prey seen in the region.
