Turkey Vultures are fairly large birds with long, broad wings. Their colors are dark brown with a featherless red head and pale bill. They are graceful but unsteady soarers and fly low to the ground and have a great sense of smell. Turkey Vultures are scavengers and can be seen at roadsides, farm fields, countryside, and landfills. They help clean the environment by eating flesh off dead animals before they decay. Researchers have noted that turkey vultures can travel 200 miles a day. Their life span is up to 24 years old and they live in Southern, Canada, North America, and South America.
In 1588 Kochi Castle was completed by lord Chosokabe Motochika but later in 1600 lord Yamanouchi Kazutoyo took control over the castle. Kochi Prefecture was then called Tosa province back then. The castle was completed in 1611 after 10 years of construction. Much of the original fortress burned down in 1727 and it was reconstructed between 1729 and 1753 in the original style. The castle has retained its original stonework structure and is not a replica like other castles in Japan. It is also the only castle in Japan to retain both its original main keep and its palace. Kochi Castle is located in the city of Kochi on the island of Shikoku in Japan.
