How To Tell A Black Vulture And A Turkey Vulture Apart. Many people are unaware that there are two kinds of vultures in North America, the common turkey vulture and the black vulture. Chances are you see black vultures all the time and don't even know it.
Turkey Vulture - thankfully a rare site out back, but they have been seen out in the back trees after what I have to assume is a dead animal bringing them in. One thing comes to my mind when I see these birds sitting and hissing (they actually make a hissing sound), and that one thing is "Angel of Death".
