How to Tell a Black Vulture from a Turkey Vulture

Did you know that there are 2 types of vultures that you are most likely to see in the state of Florida? They are the turkey vulture and the black vulture.

Do you have a nuisance bird problem? For more information and a FREE INSPECTION/ESTIMATE in Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton, Sarasota or surrounding areas, please Call 1-866-263-WILD or (941)729-2103. We are your expert for humane and technologically advanced nuisance bird deflection and removal. 

Turkey vultures have a huge 6-foot wingspan and they catch thermals high in the sky. They soar with their wings in what is called a dihedral shape which is a shallow V and often will teeter totter back and forth or side to side. They have long shapes that look like fingers on the ends of their wings. While the front edge of the wings is black and the color gradients out into a light grey out to whit-ish. If you can see them up close, you will detect their bald reddish head.

When it comes to the black vulture, the easiest part to pick out that is different is the color of the feathers. On the black, only the tips of the wings are white-ish grey. Also, they hold their wings more straight across rather than level, so you will not observe the teeter-tottering that you would in the turkey. Also their tale is significantly more stubby. If you ever see the black and the turkey vulture cruising around together, the black’s wingspan is an easy foot shorter than the turkey’s. If you see them closer you will discover the black has a bald black head. and white legs.

It is true that wild pigs have been free ranging around in the Southeast of the US since Hernando Desoto brought them as food for the settlers back during the 16th century. But during the most recent 20 years, there has been quite an increase in the numbers of this nuisance animal.

A Wild Hog Can Survive in Most Any Terrain

A little history is that prior to the 1990s the feral pigs spread in natural ways which resulted in the organic type pattern of an animal in the wild on the increase. But what has caused an unnatural increase is the amount of hunting. One thing that makes their numbers so stubborn is that they can survive in almost any environment. Feral pigs are nocturnal and very elusive. They eat mostly plants as well as insects, worms, small mammals and eggs of young birds. Another thing that is a problem is that they have 3-8 piglets per litter, start having litters at 6 months old and live for 2-3 years.

Defense

When threatened, an opossum typically hisses and shows its teeth to look scary to a predator. If that doesn’t work, then it will pretend to be dead and fall over on its side– this will often result in a predator walking away.

Skills

They are excellent at climbing, because they have opposable rear thumbs and long tails that can wrap around tree limbs. Surprisingly, they are also great swimmers, but do not like the water and prefer to be on land.
