Bird watchers...

Yes, Jean, really big vultures. They're numbers were down to a couple of dozen when they plucked them out of the wild for a captive breeding program. Besides getting caught in power lines, they succumbed to hunters as well as eating carrion that caused lead poisoning from buckshot. After bringing the number of birds back into the hundreds, the next challenge was to release them back into the wild and have them reestablish their old range, from the Santa Barbara area into the Tehachapi's and Sierra's, even establishing a flock in the Grand Canyon. Preservationists would not be thrilled seeing this many birds so close to people, but it's an awesome sight to see in person!
