A spare, rhyming text delineates a day in the life of turkey vultures. As the sun rises and the air warms, the birds glide "up, up" to " . . . tilt, soar, scan/to find the food that vultures can . . . / . . . eat!" Passing by a snake, a fox, and a bear, the creatures " . . . sniff, search, seek/for foods that . . . /REEK!" Jenkins's dynamic, brightly colored collages show the birds from different viewpoints and are often quite dramatic, especially the black silhouettes of the animals set against a red sky at sunset. The use of questions in the poetic text will also engage children. The final spread provides additional information about vultures. This picture book is a welcome resource, particularly for regions in which the soaring of the turkey vultures overhead is a familiar sight.
