This is a photograph of a resident (in Brazil) Turkey Vulture that we saw perched high atop a tree. These particular vultures have a conspicuous white patch on the nape (see photo) which is quite different from the highly-migratory red-headed and red-naped North American Turkey Vultures. Perhaps, in the future, when DNA testing is done, the Brazilian Turkey Vulture will be designated a separate species. We walked back to our hotel late in afternoon of September 29, 2011, ending a great day of sight seeing and birding. Temperatures were in the mid-80's.
