2008-11-22 Campos el Molino, Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes (Agu), Mexico
Adult with the broad white tail band. Here it is clear why it often is confused with Turkey Vulture: Proportions and wing position are very much alike.
2011-12-22 El Trapiche, Colima, Colima (Col), Mexico
Adult with the broad white tail bands. As the bird presents itself in the picture there is no real resemblance with Turkey Vulture, but seen live the two species have a very similar jizz. Lifted wings and dark coverts below.
