  • Turkey Vulture

    Turkey Vultures are often seen standing in this spread-winged stance, which is called the "horaltic pose." The stance may serve multiple functions, including warming the body and drying the wings. Research on this stance indicates that turkey vultures spread their wings in the early mornings, until the sun's intensity reaches a certain level, to raise their body temperature (which they lower at night by a few degrees as an energy saving mechanism).
