FEATURE – The turkey vulture is found from Canada to South America. This diabolical bird can go two weeks without food and can fly at only 11 weeks old. For one St. George woman, a troop of turkey vultures has been darkening her domicile uninvited for more than a decade.
In Episode No. 50 of the “No Filter Show,” Co-hosts Paul Ford and Grady Sinclair drop by the home of Joan McGregor to find out what the cluck is up with the dozens of turkey vultures that have taken up residence in the trees on her property. The fallout from that many large birds living and flying constantly overhead has created a bit of a mess for one of Dixie’s treasured residents.
