Some of you might not be aware that Suli, the Raptor Experience’s turkey vulture, turned three earlier this month. Just like every three-year-old in America, we felt she needed to have a birthday party to mark this milestone and we wanted it to be a BIG deal.

She is a member of the Education Committee for the International Association of Avian Trainers and Educators (IAATE) and a National Association for Interpretation's Certified Interpretive Guide.
