Can we call organisms like vultures decomposers? Or even saprophytes as decomposers ?

Dear student,                                                                                                                                                                      
Please find below the solution to the asked query    

Vultures are not decomposers. They are scavengers. They feed on dead organisms but does not speed up the decomposition process.

Also, saprophytes and decomposers are different. 
Saprophytes feed on dead and decaying materials in the soil. On the other hand, Decomposers breakdown complex organic matters into their simpler forms.
