Members of nature's carrion clean-up crew get star billing in this vibrantly illustrated ode to the turkey vulture. Author April Pulley Sayre's simple poem describes a typical day for vultures: they soar up into the heights on thermals and "sniff, search, seek / for foods that... / REEK!" Then, after feasting on carrion, the birds continue their search for food until the sun goes down, when they roost together "like families" in trees. With facts about vultures appended, this is a marvelous celebration of scavengers - and educational, too.
