Beaky Buzzard made his debut at the Pocatello Zoo today in his new habitat. The brand new Turkey Vulture exhibit was made possible by a grant from the Ifft Foundation, which allowed the Pocatello Zoo to renovate two old enclosures and turn them into dynamic exhibits that are safe for both animals and staff.
Beaky came to the Pocatello Zoo in July 2015 from a wildlife center in Georgia where he was brought in with a broken wing. Due to the nature of his injury his flight capability is limited, and will now call the Pocatello Zoo home.
His arrival is just in time for International Vulture Awareness Day which is Sept. 6th. http://www.vultureday.org/2015/Organisation.php?code=1998
