      The University of California Davis - Wildlife Health Center began a statewide study in 2008 looking at heavy metal exposure in scavenging birds. Turkey Vulture is one of the species that has been live trapped, tagged, and monitored. The TUVUs are fitted with "large white with black-numbers" patagial (axillary) tags that are easily visible in flight and when perched. Numbers can usually be easily read with binoculars and/or spotting scopes. Please report any sightings with exact location, observer, date, and tag number to BOTH the BBL and the two researchers below:

      The following link for the BBL has instructions on how to report the sighting of an axillary marked bird to the BBL:

      Also please report the sightings to Pete Bloom (master bander) and Terra Kelly the same info by e-mail (trkelly@..., PHBloom1@...).
