Take a Big Whiff

Are people bugging you so much that you feel like you are going to puke? When a vulture gets harassed, they just vomit on whatever animal is harassing them. That usually gets them to stop! You can learn more about this great self-defense technique and other helpful tips from these magnificent birds you can apply in your own life at International Vulture Awareness Day on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 10am to 2pm at ABQ BioPark (903 Tenth Street SW). Be sure not to miss the “Sniffing Station” where you can go nose to nose with vultures trying to smell dead animals from miles away. The first one to stick their bald head into a rotting carcass is clearly the winner. All of this fun is included in your park admission.
