“Over the weekend ~15 wild-nature” target=”_blank”>California condors< of these birds flying free in the state and a flock of them decided to start a war with my mom,” she wrote on Tuesday. 

In photos attached to the tweet, the condors can be seen perched on the railing of the deck and are tagged with what SFGate reported are numbers that correspond with birds released in Southern California’s Kern County.

Condor populations all but disappeared by the end of the 1960s due to poaching and poisoning; in 1982 there were just over 20 condors worldwide.

Condors were then brought into a captive-breeding program in an attempt to save the species from total extinction.

Now, there are more than 300 California condors in the wild and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), general and Yurok Tribe announced in March the formation of a new release facility for the condors’ reintroduction to Yurork Ancestral Territory and Redwood National Park.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the project plans to release four to six juvenile condors each year over the next 20 years.  

Responding to Quintero’s tweets, USFWS said her mother’s home was located in “historical condor habitat where natural food sources occur” and that condors “sometimes perceive houses and decks as suitable perch locations.”

The agency also advised that “hazing” to preclude the condors from causing damage and habituation is encouraged, including spraying them with water hoses, yelling, clapping, shouting and “other preventative measures such as scarecrow sprinklers.”

“We also discourage people from feeding them or trying to touch them. We hope this information helps if you experience this situation again,” USFWS said.

In a Thursday update, Quintero said her mom had given two condors pictured in a photo on her roof a “shower” and that they returned to sit with the rest of the “flock” on her tree. 

“Watching. Waiting. Doing condor things,” she added.

Fox News reached out to Quintero but did not immediately receive a response.
