Now and then a shot is called for that will need to have a bird soaring over head. Just saw on a nationwide Toyota commercial of how they are expressing the need for better exhaust emissions for the environment. They show the forest and a deer and then a bird soaring...then I notice its a turkey vulture. Yes they look like a hawk from far away but on this shot ITS A VULTURE. I know it is a living breathing animal but I'm pretty sure they were thinking something more elegant . Here are a picture of each and they are small so as to show the effect of how confusing it can be . I have been a wildlife photographer for 15 years and being a DP and seeing someone use a vulture when they are talking about a hawk ....it's like I wish they would've done their homework on the subject. It's just something that I keep spotting a few times a year.

I don't find anything unusual about seeing a TV (turkey vulture) near a highway. That's where SUV driving environmentalists feed them with road kill.
