Another un-releasable bird that is part of the educational and flight demonstration program at the Center for Birds of Prey is this Turkey Vulture. He was “rescued” when a passerby spotted him on the ground, the normal nesting spot for Turkey Vultures, and took him home. The bird subsequently imprinted on the human and now cannot live in the wild on his own.

I took a photo of one of these also Ellen, It landed back by my pond. I could not get a real clear shot, it was pretty far away, but they sure have amazing wing spans.
They sure do, I love to watch them fly. It looks so effortless, and just like fun!
