I see Turkey Vultures all the time at Maplewood Flats!
I do a monthly bird and critter count at Ambleside park and both sides of Capilano River and under Lions Gate bridge, just to the east is a mud flat area, and every time I am there, I see Turkey Vultures flying quite close to the ground!
Last count in August, found a Canada Goose carcass the Turkey Vultures were chewing on!
If you want to see Turkey Vulture up close, head up Grouse Mountain for Birds in Motion, they always have their Turkey Vulture there!
Here's a photo of the Capilano River mudflat Turkey Vultures!
Our arrival had flushed them from the carcass!
