Driving home on the back roads we (my daughter- in- law and I) spotted a Turkey Vulture floating very low. As we watched he landed in a tree right by the road. My Dil is from Thailand, so she had never seen a Turkey Vulture before. We were both quite excited for different reasons. My excitement stems from having a healthy respect for these birds as they keep our environment clean and free of disease causing bacteria. And, having worked with them in a rahab facility, I know them to have a great deal of personality once they are habituated to humans. As I am sure I have mentioned before, they are one of my favorite raptors.
