There’s a new arrival at Regenstein Birds of Prey! Grimm the cinereous vulture has joined resident vulture Linda. Both Grimm and Linda are doing well and continue to receive carcasses to feed upon.

Although vultures receive a bad reputation for both their unique appearance and diet, these scavengers play a vital role in their ecosystem. By feeding on dead animals, they recycle nutrients and speed the process of decomposition.
