Overheard at the Conservation Tap: In different parts of the world and depending on the species, vultures may also be called buzzards or condors. A group of vultures is called a kettle, committee or wake. The term kettle refers to vultures in flight, while committee refers to vultures resting on the ground or in trees. Wake is reserved for a group of vultures that are feeding. Brandywine Zoo, 1001 North Park Drive, Wilmington, Delaware 19802.
