New World vultures inhabit North and South America.

They have an raised hind toe for walking. Except for hisses and grunts, they are almost silent because they have no voice box.

This group of birds includes the Andean and California condors, and the Black and Turkey Vultures.

Some believe that New World vultures are more closely related to storks than hawks and eagles.
