Turkey Vulture Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: I've only been to Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge a couple of times in my life, but have really enjoyed it there.  It was very "birdy" both in migration (when waterfowl numbers were astronomical), and during a summer visit.  This soaring Turkey Vulture was taken there in September, 2004.
