A juvenile with a group of caracaras at the osprey overlook went and sat next to a black vulture that proceeded to preen(?) the juvenile caracara for about 15 minutes. Certainly have never seen something like this before, was pretty interesting behavior. Another birder present took some photos.

Flock located in a field along lake side drive. Easy to count as they were lined up on a fence.

Presumably the same bird found at the same spot recently. Located in a feeding flock on the HQ trail, offering many good looks over the course of 20 minutes or so (though did require some patience to initially locate). Bird in question was a magnificent adult male: black face, no eye-ring, yellow-orange breast extending into the belly. Was very active, even tangling with an Orange-crowned Warbler that got too close.
