Are there vultures in minnesota

The Turkey Vulture (Cathartes aura), also known as a buzzard, does inhabit parts of Minnesota, primarily nesting along the St. Croix and Mississippi river valleys. They also inhabit the north central parts of the state, but migrate to the southern US in the winter. Turkey vultures have a 6-foot wingspan, usually roost in secluded woods, and nest on the ground, laying eggs under cover.
