Disturbing Find – Turkey Vultures
One thing that took all the joy out of finding, photographing and filming my Ospreys was finding this box.
This box seemed to have been modified to transport large birds. it contained what appears to be the remains of two Turkey Vultures.
There was no recognizable markings to track back the box. This is located in a National Nature Preserve and may have fallen off the vehicle of some biologist.
It appears the birds may have died in the box due to the amount of organic matter left in it. The two birds had been removed and have now been decomposing for a few months.
No matter what occurred it’s obviously due to human interference and most probably gross negligence and a total lack of respect for nature.
