Turkey Vulture Nest Camera

Check out the Turkey Vulture nest camera, through those fine folks at the Raptor Resource Project.  The first egg was laid around May 9, and first hatch around June 9.  There is great information on turkey vultures on this site. 

The Raptor Center is not nearly as good at true conservation through recycling (we all know that vultures are carrion eaters, and do a great service to the environment with this activity), but in our own modest way we are contributing to a recycling effort.  As of the end of June, we've collected 287 pieces of mail in our offices weighing 49.5 lbs (since 1/9/12) through the help of an Americorp volunteer.
