Nature's Recyclers On The Wing

"They're the clean-up crew, the recyclers, the garbage men of the natural world."

Among all of Earth's creatures, few are as misunderstood as scavengers. They are nature's sanitation experts, consuming only carrion, the decaying flesh of dead bodies.

Not a pretty job to be sure, but absolutely essential to the well being of the environment. Scavengers come in all shapes and sizes, but some of the most efficient scavengers are birds.

In Western New York, the Turkey Vulture reigns as the chief scavenger. Although considered ugly by many, Turkey Vultures are a prime example of the amazing adaptivity of nature. And once you get to know a little bit more about them, the old myths surrounding this impressive species disappear like the very carrion the vultures feed on.

Tanya Lowe of Hawk Creek Wildlife Center knows the species well.

Buffalo Pools Open For The Season

BUFFALO, NY - It's official! Buffalo has opened all of its public pools as of 11am Sunday morning.

A total of 7 pools and 8 splash pads are open all day, everyday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Mayor Byron Brown said $200,000 was spent on pool improvements this year alone. The improvements include deck work, pool painting, filter repairs and plumbing maintenance.

Saturday, Brown decided to open the city's most accessible pool, Centennial Pool, a day early because of the extremely high temperatures.

The city's splash pads were also opened early due to the extreme heat we've been experiencing.

Kensington pool will be closed for Sunday only while crews repair the shut off valve. It is expected to be open on Monday.

Here is the complete list:
