Kali was found as one of two eggs in a nest at a logging site in 2003. Her parents had apparently abandoned the nest due to the logging disturbance. The eggs were incubated, and after they hatched 30 days later, were turned over to a rehabilitator.
At the rehabilitation facility, every precaution was taken to keep her from imprinting on humans. She was housed with a sibling and then later with an adult vulture, and only ever saw humans with their faces covered (a common practice used in wildlife hospitals to prevent imprinting in young birds). Yet on release, even with her sibling and wild vultures present, she kept coming down to interact with humans. Kali joined the ambassador team in November of 2003.
Turkey Vultures are intelligent and inquisitive, and Kali is no exception. She is highly curious about visitors and quick to learn new behaviors for positive reinforcement.
