It's a bird its a vulture, its a hawk is a sparrow.

This is pretty funny read the comments. The article is wrong the 'bird' is not a vulture, its a turkey. The respondents in the comments sort of remind me of Mersedesshop, people are going as far as calling it a pheasant its pretty clear that there are many experts that probably have never seen any of the creatures in real life.

It's not a Turkey Vulture.

The dumbass reporter should know the difference before writing anything, I saw an article in the Chicago Tribune las week that had mortgage spelled wrong.

I have to agree with the post made by Larry Bud on the NBCNews story -

Did RichC change his name to RonC?

"The turkey vulture didn't strike the car the car struck the turkey vulture. We have road kill all over this country and we seem to think of it as collateral damage. But lives of wild life are endangered when motorist speed even when seeing animals running or wandering onto the highway. It is as if it is our God given right to travel at 40, 50, 70 mph when there are dangers in doing so. I prey to God to forgive US for what we do with out a care."

What I want to know - Did anyone eat the bird? Those breasts probably could have been salvaged. I might've cooked 'em up with a nice cheese sauce. Mmmmm.....Tuuurkeyyyy...

It's a silly human-interest story. I can't believe how much people are STILL consumed with hatred for the Clintons that they politicize the comments. They need to get a life.

If they had a life they wouldn't be debating over a dead bird in a minivan.
