The turkey vulture count has been down this October. One reason for the lower count might be due to the Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department doing major pipe construction alone the north side of the Tanque Verde wash near where the big birds spend early mornings before continuing their migration south. There is no doubt some irony found in nature’s sanitation department having to put-up with the county’s sanitation department.
