This turkey vulture (Cathartes aura) perched on the freshly painted Stephens Street water tank looks as if he has aspirations to be an eagle. But, we know him as just a plain ol’ buzzard. So far, city officials have refurbed three of the city’s four tanks. The final one, located on West Lee Street, is scheduled for next year. – Photos by Jack Gurner
