Each Fall and Spring the desert comes alive with migrating birds.  Turkey Vultures are one of the earliest and most interesting of these migrants.  Where are the going and what special habits and traits set Turkey Vultures apart from other migrating raptors?   Are they really raptors or scavengers or both?   Many of the secrets about Turkey Vultures, California Condors, and the migration of birds will be unveiled in this presentation.
