As a young Boy Scout working on my bird study merit badge, I got hooked on birding. The Turkey Vulture was among the first birds of prey I learned to identify. Today, when we seem to be moving faster than nature intended, I often watch vultures on warm summer days making wide lazy circles in the sky, and think back to a much simpler and harmonious time.
