       An injured turkey buzzard surprised the staff at Alpine Animal Inn, 2210 Naegele Road, when they came in to open up the morning of May 12.
       Leery of people, such birds are a rare in-town sight, according to Carla Anderson, who has been a groomer at Alpine for 18 years. This buzzard was full-grown, with a four-foot wingspan.
       “He had a head injury,” she said. “We figure he flew into something and knocked himself silly.”
       Anderson and fellow Alpine staffer David Simpson drove the bird to Belcrest Animal Clinic, 1721 W. Uintah St., for treatment. From there it was shipped to the Ellicott Wildlife Center, where it will be kept until it can fly again.
       Martin Percival, a former bronze medalist in the World Irish Dance Championships and lead dancer in Lord of the Dance, has begun teaching dance classes at ArtSports.
