On warm summer days, along the edge of the road or open countryside, if you glance skyward you may see a dark silhouette floating effortlessly in the breeze. You may wonder what type of bird this is. More than likely, you've seen a Turkey Vulture.
Vultures, sometimes called buzzards, have a long history in myth and legend. They are fascinating birds — and they play a key role in our ecosystem.
Turkey Vultures grace the skies of Southeast Wisconsin from spring through fall — and delight neighbors lucky enough to live near one of their large community roosts.
