The Kern River Valley Turkey Vulture Festival celebrates the height of fall Turkey Vulture migration through California's "Valley Wild", the Kern River Valley . One of the two largest known migration sites in North America (north of Mexico) - Thousands of  Turkey Vultures were counted during 2001's 4-day festival. The entire 2001 count period from from September 1st through October 20th, tallied a total of over 20,000 Turkey Vultures. The magnitude of the migration over this southern Sierra Nevada count site is awe inspiring.
