This year’s featured bird of prey species is the turkey vulture. The turkey vulture was chosen to honor the life of Earl, an avian ambassador that resided at the Raptor Center for 40 years. Earl helped us educate thousands of guests about the importance of vultures to the environment and their fascinating adaptations for survival. Earl will be sorely missed.
