Children from the Beaufort Boys and Girls Club watch a vulture walk past them Thursday afternoon during a demonstration by The Center for the Birds of Prey of Charleston. The children were asked to hold their hands out to show there was no food in them so the vulture would not be distracted.

The Fripp Audubon Society fulfilled its annual mission in educating the community about the birds that call the Lowcountry home. It invited a biologist from The Center for Birds of Prey, part of the Avian Conservation Center in Charleston, to the Beaufort Boys and Girls Club to speak to a group of children.
