Juvenile Turkey Vulture

By | September 21, 2021

This juvenile Turkey Vulture was in a fresh cut field with several adult Turkey Vultures. This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

I read that the young fledge at about nine to ten weeks, and the family groups remain together until fall.
