Just thought I’d try to work in the old Johnny Carson joke.

While pretty much all birds are protected by law in some way, turkey vultures are protected under a treaty between Mexico, Canada, and the United States (the Migratory Bird Treaty of 1918).

Big fines for killing birds on that treaty (unless they are birds that hunting is allowed - defined game birds including Canada geese and ducks).

Strictly speaking it is against that treaty to take a canned air horn outside to scare off turkey vultures trying to make a home in trees around town for example. (Turkey vulture poo is corrosive to cars and kills vegetation below trees, so in town there isn’t a whole lot of love for them when they show up.)

Some wingnut is firing a gun on the river at 12:30 AM - hunting isn’t allowed in the middle of the night (and I’m pretty sure firing a shotgun at night is not exactly safe). That might require a call to the sheriff if it continues.

Seriously ALL birds are protected except for the 3 species I named. Some are game birds, allowed to be killed by specific means during specific times, like some geese and ducks, but don’t be bothering others, even in the presence of the non-protected. You don’t want to face the fines.
