Turkey vulture

Turkey vulture
A.k.a. buzzard (Cathartes aura). One of the most common carrion-eaters in the Americas, it's not closely related to Old World vultures. The inset shows the same bird fluffing its feathers. Outside irrigated lands near Fallon, Nevada.

Thanks everyone! They're graceful in flight, but not the most attractive birds close up... ;)
