Kudos to Kathy

Special thanks to Kathy Michell, for her February 6 TRR story about black vultures.

And may her insights about these beautiful creatures, and her compassion for them, sift down to ignoramuses who shot two of them.

Had a warmer climate lured these birds to the Upper Delaware Region?

The week before Christmas I saw five or six black vultures feeding at a deer carcass along Route 652, a mile west of Narrowsburg.

Wow! It was a sighting I’d never made nor expected to make this far north. 

A 1989 map by birding expert Roger Tory Peterson set their northern range at the Mason-Dixon Line, 200 miles south.

I wonder, too, how the birds fared in late January, when an Arctic Vortex plunged thermometers to minus 17 F.
