White Tailed Kites are a rare species that are declining. CA Fish & Wildlife set aside grazed lands and allowed them to become grasslands again. These lands are now supporting 10 times more raptors including Kites. Kites hover as high as 80 feet above ground before diving straight down to catch their favorite meal, the Vole. Thanks to Angie who is lucky to have them on her property for sharing her pictures.

Since inception we have added the Shelter Partners volunteer group, who support our local Animal Control organization, and Amador County Animal Response Team (ACART).
