A Turkey Vulture is not a killer.  It cleans up after an animal's death, but is never the cause of that death.  Its red featherless head aids the process and gives it a distinctively menacing look.  it is also a notoriously artful flyer.  Lighter than other birds of similar size it rides wind currents to soar  and perform mid-air acrobatics with ease.
