Down here in FL,  we often see the white headed buzzards (Bald Eagle)
in the roadkill scrum with the regular (Black and Turkey) buzzards as well as Caracara.

You are one up on me. In my life I do not think I have ever seen a bald eagle.

They are here in Texas. Usually around lakes and high cliffs. When I was in the piney woods, next to lake Livingston. A pair of bald eagles were playing together up in the tall pines. They made beautifull calls to one another and gave us a nice show for about fifteen minutes.
     They do eagle watching boat cruises on Inks Lake. A large gathering of bald eagles make there home in the high cliffs above the lake.

We have a couple of families of Bald Eagle that live near the dam on the lake I live on in East Texas.  We see one on occasion, they are beautiful birds.  We also have many varieties of Hawk that are majestic as well...

If you go to the city dump in Thunder Bay, you will see a hundred or more bald eagles plus a few goldens just hanging around with the million seagulls waiting for the people to leave. The seagulls wait for nothing. Early evening you can see hundreds of them leaving the waterfront on their way to the dump.

Well..... if I were ever to get up there, my main visit purpose would be to meet you and play guitars. The city dump would be a less glorious place to see bald eagles than what I would prefer.
Why are all the people hanging around the city dump? Just curious.

Well, are their different kinds of vultures? I retired from communications as in radios and cell towers. Some of the tower owners put up actual dead, stuffed vultures to hang on towers to keep the live ones away. Let the debate go on....

Heh, well Thunder Bay ain't the most exciting place on earth. Anyway, long line of cars, trucks, garbage trucks etc. entering to dump ... stuff. Employees and equipment. Keeps the eagles in the trees mostly but the seagulls love people. It is quite a sight to see so many bald eagles acting like vultures.

Didn't work for us.  The eco division got a permit to taxidermy (bad usage probably) a roadkill buzzard
and hung it on various buildings where they were trying to discourage roosting.
Buzzard counts before, during, and after were not significantly different.

Note: Buzzards are Federally protected, be careful out there.

Another recent strange discovery is that Storks could be related to vultures. I suppose there are many raptors that seem to be vultures as well.
    But they are more related to hawks, kites, falcons and eagles. And of course some of my favorites are the ravens, crows and magpies.

Check out what a buzzard is.

My favorite raptor is the  osprey.

Old world and new world vultures has a broader inclusion as well.
    In North America we have three vultures, black, turkey and as you pointed out the condor.

They sure aren't rare around these parts! But yes, they do an important job. I think it was India or maybe China I was reading about where they were dying out because of pollution and big spike in disease arose because of it.

Around here I used to say, "heh, there's the Tejas sanitation crew at work"

    I have respect for the function vultures provide.
