An Economic Development Proposal for the City of Frederika
Based on what I documented this evening, I have an economic development proposal for the City of Frederika. Since most of the turkey vultures in the county and possibly multi-county area seem to be congregating in Frederika, why not adopt the slogan “Turkey Vulture Capital of Bremer County” and make some money off them. People would travel from miles away to see the kettle of vultures. (Kettle, along with wake, committee, and volt are terms used to describe groups of turkey vultures.) Think of the revenue the birds could generate. Throw out a dead animal every other day or so and economic riches are yours.(By the way, you might be competing with Cedar Falls. They have many turkey vultures too.)
On the other hand, you could just stop by and look at them like I did. It is interesting that they are gathering on the tower this year, instead of in dead trees along the Wapsie.
