We have occasionally been asked why we call the blog Buzzard Tracks.  It's simple.  Every year on March 15th, the turkey vultures (Cathartes aura), or locally, buzzards, come back to roost in Hinckley, Ohio.  They've been doing since 1957, and they are locally celebrated much the same way Groundhog Day is celebrated elsewhere.  We have adopted it here as sort of a mascot.  You will see it often.

The buzzard was also for years the mascot of WMMS Radio, but has been retired.  We do not refer to that buzzard, since it is a copyrighted image, and we would never, ever violate copyright.
