Turkey Vultures
By: Breanna Strunc

Eyesight
Turkey vultures have very keen eyesight. They need to see good so they can spot mice or other small animals from a far distance so they can eat them.
Hearing
Sense turkey vultures can't make many sounds, they depend on their hearing. Turkey vultures have very good hearing so they can hear tiny animals. This way, it makes it easier to hunt!
Talons
Turkey vultures look for food, find food, but then how do they pick it up? They use their talons! Talons are kind of like claws that pick up, carry, and rip food.
Beak
Turkey vultures use their beak in many different ways. They use their beak to rip up food to bite sized pieces. They also use their beaks to eat their food.
