Chuck was the first orphaned Turkey Vulture to be found in Colorado in 1999. He was admitted to a rehabilitation center in southern Colorado, near the location where he was found. Having no foster parents to mentor him, Chuck quickly became imprinted on humans. The law dictates that rehabilitators cannot keep birds they imprint themselves, so Chuck was transferred to the Birds of Prey Foundation. Sadly, he does not associate with other Turkey Vultures and does not like them.
