Vultures are often overlooked, underappreciated, and unloved, despite the vital role they play healthy ecosystems. Worldwide, vultures are more likely to be threatened or endangered than any other group of raptor, but in the United States Turkey and Black Vultures may be increasing in number. Speaker Katie Fallon discusses the life and times of the noble Turkey Vulture, including its feeding, nesting, and roosting habits, migratory behaviors, and common misconceptions.

Fallon is the author of Vulture: The Private Life of an Unloved Bird (2020, 2017). A member of the International Association of Avian Trainers and Educators, Katie has worked with birds since 1998. Over the last twenty years she has given educational presentations featuring live raptors, vultures, parrots, and corvids.
