A turkey vulture is a vulture, not a buzzard.  "Buzzard" is a term fro
various hawk species, especial of the genus Buteo.  There are parts of the
US where the Turkey Vulture is called by some a buzzard or a turkey
buzzard, but  ornithologically that is not correct, and no bird watcher
would refer to it as a buzzard.
