  • Turkey vulture fuzzballs in Marshall!
We have a hatch!

In April, we reported that the Raptor Resource Project, an Iowa-based conservation non-profit, had set up a hidden camera inside a barn in the town of Marshall to observe the hatch cycle of Missouri turkey vultures --  a phenomenon very rarely seen by humans, and never before captured with a live video stream.

Well, looks like two little fuzzballs have popped out of their shells. Check out the live (and unbearably cute) video feed by clicking here.
