The cleaner of the world

Ahhh…spring is here and you wanna know how I know……TURKEY VULTURES ARE BACK!!!!

I have a special place for turkey vultures. I never really understood them, but knowing what I know now, wow they are amazing creatures.

They may not look pretty, but they are the cleaners of the world. Without them, there would be wayyyy more roadkill, and more disease spread. But with them, everything is dandy 🙂

If you see a large bird soaring in the air, with V shaped wings, and a black/silver wing-you are seeing a turkey vulture. Appreciate how beautiful they are.

Also, you may see them eating on the road or beside the road…please be careful. If it doesn’t gross you out too much, move the animal they are eating off the road so that they do not get hit when they are just trying to fill their hunger.

Spring is here, and with it will be many more species that make Ontario’s summer awesome! Hope you are excited to see what one will be up next




About Sarrah

I am a wildlife biologist with a great passion for wildlife, including conservation and public educations. Through my years, I have come to realize many of peoples' concerns about wildlife has to do with a lack of knowledge about their behaviour and needs...this is where I think I can help.
