Checking in on Turkey Vulture Camera

The Turkey Vulture chicks featured on the Raptor Resource's nest cam are almost six weeks old now.   Their "nest" is in a hayloft of a barn in Missouri.  The first egg was laid May 9, the second was laid May 12, and both hatched on June 19, about 9 hours apart. 

If you haven't had the chance to meet our 38-year-old education Turkey Vulture, Nero, please do!  He is a part of our Adopt a Raptor program, which helps feed, house, and provide medical care for our education ambassadors, who because of extensive injuries cannot be released back into the wild.
