Do Turkey Vultures migrate South in Winter?
Turkey Vultures in the Southern US do not, but the Northern birds may migrate as far as South America. So some do, but most do not.

It appears that wild turkeys in Minnesota and Arizona don't migrate far from their home area.. from http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/young_naturalists/turkey/index.html. Minnesota…'s wild turkey is a smart bird. It flies with a powerful beat of its wings. It sneaks through the woods with barely a sound.. Today there are more wild turkeys in Minnesota than there have been in at least 100 years. Most live in southern Minnesota.. Toms can weigh more than 20 pounds. Hens weigh 8 to 10 pounds.. Even though turkeys are big, they can fly and escape great horned owls and other predators.. Wild turkeys live in hardwood forests near farm fields. Turkeys feed on insects and young plants in the spring and summer. In the fall they eat lots of acorns and hickory nuts, called mast , so they can build up a layer of fat to help them survive winter's cold.. "Turkeys do not migrate south for the winter." They can find winter food by going to farm fields and eating corn and grain leftover from the fall harvest.. from http://www.floa.org/flora_fauna.htm. Forest Lakes, Arizona is located in a Ponderosa Pine forest that stretches from the town of Williams east along the Mogollon Plateau into New Mexico. This is the largest Ponderosa Pine forest in North America.. The largest bird of the Ponderosa Pine forest is the turkey .. "While turkeys migrate to more temperate climes when snow and cold hit the pine type, they don't move very far, and can be found a couple thousand feet lower down in the Pinon-Pine type throughout the winter months."
Quoting from the TIMES newspaper of July2 ,some quails from the Med or North Africa were coming into the UK. they were heard calling near Bempton Cliffs N E Yorks and near Bal…dock, Herts.
HOW THE HELL SHOULD I KNOW...IM NOT A VULTURE...GO ASK A VULTURE I was here. And yes they do migrate
Only the birds in Northern areas..Birds in the South do not migrate.
I am not sure what you mean. Do want the answer to be something like: a trait of birds? A bit of clarification would go a long way in answering this question. My best guess is… 'something birds do.'
Apparently not, since they are spotted around Cape Cod in winter. I saw a group of seven turkeys in our yard this morning (March 5, 2012). They walked right up to me and didn'…t seemed bothered by my presence at all.
Only in northern sections of their range. Birds in the south do not migrate.
What I have witnessed is crows gathering by the tens of thousands, which they are doing now in southern Ohio. Food ofcourse is the reason any bird migrates. It would be tough …going with no road kill, baby birds, or vermin to eat so it makes sense they do.
Only if they don't get eaten for Thanksgiving!
No. Many birds have weird names like the elephant bird or the kiwi bird. There are so many birds, scientists have to make up names.
October or november, it depends how cold it is
It must be warm enough where you are for them to live year-round. Where I live, in northern Idaho, robins do migrate south to where it is warmer. In Massachusetts, the robi…ns do migrate but robins from further north (Canada) often winter here making it seem that the local robins stay all winter.
In Birds of Prey
Well, if it's a bird, then yes.
In Zoology or Animal Biology
Mostly Birds. Rarley other animals do.
