    From a quick Google search I think this is a Turkey Vulture but not 100% sure. Reason I'm asking is that it was outside my parents house camping out on the rooftop. Never seen one of these before so it was kinda cool. Also freaked the parents out quite a bit too. Any ideas?

    It's a Patentus Lodsys scavenger. They are pretty rare and almost extinct.

    Got me. I copied & pasted that in Google without reading it, and it wasn't until I pasted in non-italics that I saw what it was.
