BC (or Butch Cassidy as I like to call him) is back again this summer.
We first saw Butch in June last year. We’re sure he was here earlier this summer but we couldn’t confirm his tag until he landed in the farmer’s freshly mown field. We could see a vulture in flight with a red tag but I couldn’t see the tag letters. He hatched in 2011, tagged in 2012 and this is the 2nd summer we’ve seen Butch. We reported the sighting to the USGS Bird Banding Laboratory to help them track the vultures for their research.
This video shows a turkey vulture that finds a dead mouse and Butch is at the end.
