Movement Ecology Of Turkey Vultures In North America
April 26, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
With a range that stretches from Canada to the Falklands Is-lands, the Turkey Vulture is the most widespread and abundant New World vulture. Yet, despite their abundance much of the basic ecology of Turkey Vultures remain unknown. Hawk Mountain Sanctuary has studied Turkey Vultures for the last 15 years. We’ll share what we’ve learned about the movement ecology of this common species using both high and low-tech methods. David Barber is the Senior Research Biologist at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary where he oversees the Sanctuary’s Geographic information System (GIS) and their long-term monitoring programs. When he is not exploring the Sanctuary birding, butterflying or sitting on North Lookout counting raptors he can be found brewing beer at Taylor House Brewing company in Catasauqua.
