People were fascinated, excited, and some were enraged, by this awareness raising campaign of BirdLife South Africa.
I might have preferred this modification:
Awesome news that this bird was .. (checks the intertoobs again) .. a hoax!?
Dammnit! Okay, yes, I was tricked. Ya got me.
And my first fancy dress costume as a kid (well that i remember) was an African Lammergeier too, dangnabbit! Sigh.
Huh. Nowadays they don't even call it that? Arrrggh.
Oh and it isn't endangered quite now like I thought it was back then? Sheesh, is everything I thought I knew once wrong? Sigh.
Oh well, good to know it isn't actually as threatened as I once thought though.
Feh. I hate birds. Stupid therapods that shit all over the place. If it weren't for their vital roll in insect control .....
