Turkey Vulture

I noticed several turkey vultures just walking around on the grass just off the banks of the Rio Grande. I have seen vultures walk across ground before but always when carrion was nearby. I saw no signs of any carrion but perhaps they were looking for morsels from a larger kill that had already been cleaned up by the local coyotes.

 

Me fijé en varios zopilotes aura caminando por la hierba al lado de la orilla del Río Bravo. Había visto zopilotes caminando en el suelo antes pero siempre cuando la carroña estaba cerca. No vi ninguna seña de carroña, pero, a lo mejor, buscaban bocadillos de un animal ya consumido por los coyotes locales.
