I had them on my Edwards County, TX place. They would hunt the feeders at my cabin. While you can mistake them for Turkey Vultures, their yellow bill and feet stand out again the dark plumage quite well even at a distance. That is helpful sometimes.

I put a few photos here so you can see what I mean:

Quite the coincidence. Recently while doing a sea watch with Darrell Faxon he mentioned that he had seen one some years ago (near his farm I believe) in fall.

I see the species every winter in Arizona. They are easy to pass off as Turkey Vultures. I have looked for one in Oregon for years, but mine have all been Turkey Vultures. Birds seen at unusual times of year for Turkey Vultures should be given close scrutiny. Zone-tailed seven do the rocky flight of. a Turkey Vulture.

Neat find by Em and Adrian.
