Hi, folks! I am still working on the manuscript for Vulture Culture 101; I had to take a bit of a break to wrap up my festival vending schedule for the summer, but now that things are quieting down some I have more writing time. As of this blog post the rough draft of the book is over 35,000 words and I still have plenty to say and share with my readers.
One of the things I’m including is a Vulture Culture-related glossary. While some of the terms are in regards to general natural history, others are more specific to Vulture-ish activities. Here’s what I have so far:
Cape (as in taxidermy)
Case skin (also barrel skin)
Open skin (also abdominal cut)
What else do you think I should include? Should I put in really basic terms like “bone” or “pelt”? Comment with your suggestions, and thank you 🙂
