Be Aware!

Tomorrow is a very special day for us at Cary BirdCam.  Because September 7 is International Vulture Awareness Day!  This is a great time to be aware of species in our area and to better understand the vultures' role in our ecology.  In our area there are two species: the Black Vulture (shown) and the Turkey Vulture (common across much of North America).  Both are vital to clearing carrion and returning those nutrients to other use.  Many people find these birds repulsive.  But in so many ways they are truly majestic:  their flight style alone seems so graceful and skillful!  Give these birds your best at least for one day.
