Black Vultures are sighted at the Preserve

The arrival of the Black Vulture makes the Preserve its most northerly known location in the United States. Preserve Research Associate Joe Bridges is the first to document the bird’s breeding in 1997, and continues to study how this generally southern resident is able to expand its range, complete its breeding cycle, and feed, forage, and carry out other activities.
