September 1, 2010
This young turkey vulture (left) captured near Provost appeared relatively calm as it and a sibling were banded in an effort to track the large birds which prefer remote sites away from people. Wayne Nelson (Ph.D.), a Camrose man who retired as an area wildlife biologist for the Fish and Wildlife Division four years ago was in the Provost area along with master bird bander Rick Morse of St. Albert and area biologist Dave Moore of Vermilion and local fish and wildlife officer Lee Robley to capture and then release the two birds estimated to be 51 to 54 days old. The birds, discovered in the east central part of Alberta approximately 20 years ago appear to be increasing in numbers (see PN Sept. 23, 2009) yet no nesting birds have been found west of Edmonton. The secretive animals keep a low profile says Nelson who continues to study the birds and along with Morse have banded 41 this year. Nelson adds that the scavengers are “Mother Nature’s cleanup squad” and hopes that farmers keep old buildings which serve as nesting spots and refuge for the birds that fly as far south as South America for the winter. The two birds were expected to be old enough to fly within 10 days of the yellow tag banding (top) on the wings. ©Provost News Photos.
