Cathartidae

New World Vultures

The family Cathartidae contains seven species of New World vultures including the turkey vulture, black vulture, king vulture, lesser and greater yellow-headed vultures, the California condor and the Andean condor. Vultures are scavenging birds, feeding mostly from carcasses of dead animals. New World vultures have a good sense of smell, but Old World vultures find carcasses exclusively by sight. New World vultures are not closely related to the Old World vultures.
