      22 March 2009 - Sunday - On Highway 175 within 1/4 mile off Hwy 101
      near Hopland I observed Turkey Vulture # 92. About 30 TUVUs were
      tagged last August and September here at the UC Hopland Research &
      Extension Center as part of a state-wide research project. All of
      the captured birds were fitted with large, round white "patagial"
      tags with bold black numbers stencilled onto them. These numbers
      are fairly easy to read "top and bottom" so the tag numbers are
      visible when the bird is perched or in flight (dorsal or ventral
      view). Please keep an eye out for such tagged birds as many of these
      may be returning from the wintering grounds in Central and South
      America. Any sightings provide valuable data to the researchers ...
      especially helping them figure out if specific birds are resident or
      migratory. By posting the sightings on Mendobirds one will get the
      information to the researchers (via myself). Thanks & Good
      birding. Bob Keiffer

      done better. The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the
