They have the same job, essentially.
Last week we had a dead possum and a dead deer on the road. The scavengers, mostly vultures - during the day, took care of them before they really started to stink.
Have you ever watched one of these guys fly? They float on the air. You can always tell where the updrafts are in the Spring and Fall - the vultures ride them, long lazy spirals in the air.
They go south when the weather gets too cold to carry the smell of....uh....dinner....to them. They leave toward the end of November and come back in February. Vultures mean Spring.
