TTRS: Vulture? Why not?

While we did not catch many small mammals (only our trap-happy woodrat), we caught two very interesting critters today! A corn snake and a turkey vulture!!!

Cody got the corn snake from a metal coverboard, and the vulture was in a tomahawk trap. Both animals were from our tickiest grid here at TTRS, but we did not find ticks on either one!

Thanks to Rich Keith, Michelle Rosen, and Steve Schmitt for their advice on how safely to approach extracting and handling this bird!

Just had to include a neat invert photo, too! Are these termites? Lots of them out today!
