Summary
"Turkey vultures soar on the balmy air, looking for their next stinky feast. These birds don't hunt--they like their food to be already dead. Vultures are part of nature's cleanup crew"--Inside front dust jacket
Summary
Members of nature's carrion clean-up crew get star billing in this vibrantly illustrated ode to the turkey vulture. Author April Pulley Sayre's simple poem describes a typical day for vultures: they soar up into the heights on thermals and "sniff, search, seek / for foods that... / REEK!" Then, after feasting on carrion, the birds continue their search for food until the sun goes down, when they roost together. With facts about vultures appended, this is a marvelous celebration of scavengers -- and educational, too. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
