The Turkey Vulture Natures Forgotten Environmentalist

The Turkey Vulture: Nature’s Forgotten Environmentalist

from issue:

I’ve known a couple of Turkey Vultures that waited for me to do chores in the morning at the hay barn. They knew I would be there every day on time. I named them Harry and Carrie. They would perch on the corral rail, across from the hay barn, watching me the whole time. When I was done with chores, they would fly away. I know they grew attached to me, as I grew attached to them!
