Bye Bye Buzzards


Each year, Boyce Thompson says goodbye to the Turkey Vultures that make their home here spring through fall before returning to Mexico for the winter. These fascinating birds are scavengers that can tolerate the heat of the summer and soar over the Picketpost Mountains each day in search of "road kill." Although many people think these creatures are unattractive, they are actually very charismatic and fascinating. Learn more about about the birds during guided walks, vulture viewing and exhibits.

Bye Bye Buzzards takes place September 30, 2017 at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum and the annual "send off"  activities are included with the $10 admission to the arboretum.
