Bird's nests but now I can't remember where I got this from and when the law was enacted. Google here I come.
Thanks, India. A friend of mine saw a turkey vulture here in Denver today! Spring is here!! I have no idea what the first protected natural item was...??? I'd love to know!
I will be sure to let people know this and thanks for bringing this to my attention. I find joy in the smallest signs of nature including animal scat. Trivia ? Don't look it up, what was the first protected natural item?
Oh, that's fantastic!! At least they get to go to something educational!! Thank you for the information. Would you please put notes regarding that in the note field? It will help stop the confusion. ;-)
Christy, thanks for the important reminder that feathers are protected. I do hold a salvage permit to use these for educational purposes. I am an environmental educator and work at a nature center.
India, it is illegal to possess these feathers unless you are licensed or permitted to do so - Turkey Vultures are included in the Migratory Bird Act and you can be fined and/or jailed for having them. Please read the following: http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/about/faqs/bir.... We look forward to seeing some actual turkey vulture spottings from you!
I found an old jar while hiking and then put all the feathers in there when I found them.
