Yesterday was the turkey vulture, today is the black vulture. From a distance they look pretty similar, but closer inspection reveals some differences — the most obvious being the color of the head. Black vultures are also a bit smaller.

Vulture fact of the day: Vultures have excellent sight and smell and can find a dead animal from as far as a mile away.
