Turkey Vulture Migration Project

There is a "Buzzard Roost" near my home and I enjoy watching them catch the updrafts to gain altitude. I know of two of these roosts and have loosely watched them come and go each year. Most people have no idea that the buzzards migrate each year. This web site gives some information on the subject
I'm sure the Wright Brothers and Mr. Curtus gained much information on flight by watching these birds. The image was taken by me ater a dead cow was located in the field near our home. Click the photo or go to other views at sights in my back yard.  In the Summer look at the top of the State Police radio tower to see the Buzzards taking a short rest break there......... Jack
