Last summer (2007) it was the year of the Turkey Vulture. We were surrounded by flocks of these huge birds with red heads. When we were hiking up Mt. Gardner we flushed out Turkey Vultures that were nesting. When we walked to Snug Cove they soared overhead. On our lst day 10-12 vultures were circling the Lazy Bowen and we knew that there was something dead close by. Sure enough, down on the beach there was a baby seal that would recycle itself in the circle of life.
