Dr. Keith Bildstein, Hawk Mountain's Director of Conservation Science, published a new blog post on Hawk Mountain's blog The Vulture Chronicles about his recent spring trip to Arizona to trap and track Black and Turkey Vultures with Senior Research Biologist Dr. JF Therrien.

The trip was incredibly successful with 4 new Turkey Vultures caught and tagged and two full-day roadside counts. With these four caught, that brings their total since May 2014 up to 15 vultures. Keith expresses his satisfaction with this success in the post: "Not bad... Not bad at all."
