The vulture and the buzzard are known to be similar to a lot of people. A vulture is known to be a vulture in North America. A buzzard may also be considered to be a vulture. The confusing thing is that some people assume that a buzzard is a hawk. It will all depend on where they are currently living.

Just in case you are not familiar with what a vulture is, this is a type of bird that is known for consuming animals that have already been dead. Buzzards are normally brown and they will come with rounded wings. They are also known to have short tails.

A vulture is a bird of prey, and there are two types, which would be New World and Old-World vultures. The Old-World vultures feast off the carcasses of dead animals. Buzzards are also birds of prey and are mostly located in Europe, while vultures are found globally; however, they cannot be found in Australia and Antarctica.

Vultures are black as coal, while buzzards are brown with white on their wings, breast, and underbelly. One of the more unappetizing aspects of the vulture is that they have a completely bald head and has been speculated that the reason they are bald is to keep their heads clean during feeding.

They have broad, majestic wings for flying and impeccable vision. While vultures mostly feed on sick or dead animals, buzzards mainly eat rabbits; however, it has been said that they do feast on other small animals and carcasses.
