How many vultures are there in North America?

    There are only three species of vulture in North America. First and most common is the turkey vulture, which ranges from southern Canada to S. America. Then there’s the black vulture which breeds in southern N. America to S. America. Lastly, there’s the California condor, which lives only in California and Arizona and is still highly endangered. As far as a grand total for sheer number of individuals, I can’t find good population size estimates. Both turkey vultures and black vultures are very common, but the California condor only has some 150+ individuals in the wild. For contrast, one estimate of the worldwide population of turkey vultures is estimated at 4.5 million birds.
