Welcome, new chicks!

The vulture chicks are born! 

They were born yesterday, but I haven't been able to get a good photo yet - Mom sits on them and keeps them safe, and all I hear is hissing from under her wings.  The only reason I know they're hatched is the incredibly bad smell (it's a safety feature) and a fuzzy little butt poking out from under Mom's wing.

Pictures as soon as I can get them.
