Clifton couple helps save turkey vulture

CLIFTON - Deanna and Bill Reed may live in the quiet Penobscot County town of Clifton but their home is always abuzz with company. Night after night, flocks of turkey vultures gather in the couple's back yard and hang out in their trees. It's a visit the Reeds have always looked forward to - until earlier this month, when they looked out their window and saw one of their feathered friends stuck upside down high above the ground.

"It was the day we had that unexpected snowstorm with freezing rain," said Deanna Reed. "Bill noticed they were hanging lower than normal. He looked up and saw one hanging upside down. And he was stuck by his tail. We couldn't figure out how he was stuck, but there must've been a crack in the branch that he got his tail stuck in."
