April’s speaker has given a presentation to the Monticello Bird Club before. Katie Fallon spoke about Cerulean Warblers a few years back and gave an excellent talk. Tonight’s program, however, will center on the much maligned and little loved Turkey Vulture. The Black Vulture will get its share of attention no doubt, but it is the pink-headed cousin that Katie will discuss in greatest depth. Vultures do their level best to keep roadkill off our highways and our ecosystem healthy. We will learn about their feeding, nesting, and migratory behavior and never again make a rude remark about these most necessary of animals.
Among other things, Katie has written books on vultures and Cerulean Warblers, co-founded the Avian Conservation Center of Appalachia, and presently serves as President of the Mountaineer Chapter of the National Audubon Society. Come listen to a genuine expert and depart with a newfound appreciation–if not love–for the humble TV.
As tradition dictates, you are invited to our Meet the Speaker pre-meeting dinner at Brick Oven Restaurant, 1966 Rio Hill Center, Charlottesville at 5:30pm.
