Turkey Vulture in Flight

With a beautiful v-shaped wingspan of 6 feet the turkey vulture is the master of flight.
Most birds need to flap their wings to sustain their flight. When soaring, turkey vultures rarely flap their broad wings. Instead they do flight adjustments by altering their wingspread to effortlessly catch an updraft, then gliding down just to soar once again upward.
