Turkey Vulture Chick Debut


Finally!
I have been reviewing the video recording from the vulture nest cam. WOW!
This eight week old turkey vulture chick makes the long climb out of the nesting cavity. The hollow of this oak tree is 14 feet deep. The second chick makes its appearance the next day, it will take some time for me to pull the footage. When I get it done, I will post it here.
This is like watching a baby take tentative steps. Bliss.

Shasta Wildlife Rescue – Run for the Wild

On Saturday, April 6, I will be at Shasta Wildlife Rescue for their 13th annual SWRR Run for The Wild held together with the Open House and Baby Shower.  At Anderson River Park, in Anderson, CA.

Be sure to see “Sunny” the turkey vulture, their very own Ugly Bird ambassador. Sunny was kind enough to show me how a turkey vulture moved and held itself.

So…if you are in the area, stop on by and say “Hi.”
