SWIPE for SERIES: Carcass wars! Possibly the entire region's Turkey Vultures and Ravens were fighting over the scarce remains of this deer carcass. I feel bad for the buck, but it's fulfilling an important role in the ecosystem. Thanks to my cool neighbor @ledugan for spotting this scene on her way to work and insisting I go photograph it. ⚠️ WARNING: graphic nature images. #turkeyvulture #elite_raptors

You guys remember our stunning Turkey Vulture from a couple of weeks ago, right?! He was found on the side of the road covered in frost suffering from severe head trauma. With some supportive care and anti-inflammatory medication, his symptoms fully resolved over the course of a week or so. We're happy to report he was released back into the wild earlier this week! This is why we rehab!

Made a new friend in zoology today (yes, it’s real, it’s not stuffed) #turkeyvulture #inclassguest #zoology #viu #ilearnhere

When Mortimer decides that sunning is more important than flying, my arm gets a nice workout 😊

Missing the sanctuary, but I am excited to start my Australian adventure tomorrow!!!

🌟 Hi. My name is Wonder. I am the only known albino Turkey Vulture in the country. Actually, I am technically leucistic as I have some pigment in my plumage, so almost albino but not quite. My vision is too poor to be able to survive on my own in the wild. I was found facedown in the snow with frostbite to three of my toes because I lost my way migrating south from Michigan in the Winter. I defecate down my legs in order to keep cool using a process called urohidrosis. I do not have a voice box, and therefore don't have a "call" the way most birds do and instead grunt and hiss to express myself. Since I do not hunt live prey I am not actually a raptor and more closely related to condors, and my feet are more like that of a chicken than a raptor. My beak, however, is meant for ripping apart flesh and can easily tear through a cowboy boot. When I feel threatened, my superpower is projectile vomiting the most putrid smelling substance you'll ever smell in your life. Aside from all of those pleasantries, I am an integral part of the food chain to maintain a healthy habitat acting essentially as a janitor to the environment.
Vultures and Condors are heavily affected by the use of lead bullets that most hunters continue to use despite overwhelming scientific evidence that has proven the detrimental effects it has on these species

Turkey Vulture - Nature's cleaning crew, they are consummate scavengers. Soaring and riding thermals trying to pick up the smell of fresh carcasses. Their wingspans can reach up to 180 cms. #turkeyvulture #wildlifephotography #wildlife #birds #eagles @naturalindiana

Turkey vulture, fumed with a first coat of oil. See, I did get something done other than breaking one table saw and then obtaining and assembling a new one.

Turkey Vulture 🌿 The Turkey Vulture’s primary form of defense is regurgitating semi-digested meat, a foul-smelling substance which deters most creatures intent on raiding a vulture nest. It will also sting the predator’s eyes if the predator is close enough to get the vomit in its face or eyes. 🌻

We are so inspired by Leah's passion for raptors and appreciate her amazing donation! Check out the story from CBS Local here: goo.gl/9WBDi5 -- Happy Give to the Max Day! #umngive #TurkeyVulture

Though maligned as ugly and associated with death, Vultures perform an indispensable function around the world: if not for their carrion-eating ways, the landscape would quickly become littered with creature carcasses. Supremely adapted to a diet of rotting meat, Turkey Vultures have evolved a remarkably high tolerance for microbial toxins, and play an important ecological role in disposing of carcasses that could otherwise breed disease. They truly are 'Nature's janitor'. This Turkey Vulture in backcountry Baja, Mexico was a fine specimen, roosting with 2 dozen others. They're graceful fliers, and range from gliding high in thermals to very close to the ground, and thanks to their keen sense of smell, are usually the first scavenger to arrive at a carcass - a clear advantage. Here it displayed its 6-foot wingspan and bald, fleshy, pinkish-red head. Seeing a kettle of these distinctive birds of prey is an intimidating sight: with their 6-foot wingspans, they wheels around overhead, cast big shadows and stare intently at you. It's like a scene out of an old Western movie. *gulp*
