Vulture: The Private Life of an Unloved Bird Join Katie Fallon for a discussion of her latest book which chronicles the life and times of one of the world’s most under-appreciated and overlooked birds: the turkey vulture. Part ecological memoir, part travel narrative, part scientific exploration, and part love story, this book examines the roles turkey vultures–and all vultures–play in healthy ecosystems. Fallon travels to India, Arizona, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and her own backyard in her quest to study, care for, and observe this often unloved though vitally important (and uniquely beautiful!) bird. Katie is also the author of “Cerulean Blues: A Personal Search for a Vanishing Songbird” (Ruka Press, 2011) and is one of the founders of the Avian Conservation Center of Appalachia, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving wild birds through scientific research; outreach and public education; and rescue and rehabilitation. The ACCA is based near Morgantown, WV, and each year treats more than 200 injured wild birds, conducts dozens of environmental education programs, and sponsors citizen-science research projects. Go to http://www.katiefallon.com/ for more information about Katie. A book signing will follow the presentation.
