Angelenos took to Hermosa Beach Saturday afternoon to dig up Angry Birds piggy banks that were stuffed with cash and placed ankle-deep in the sand.

Twitter users began reporting their winnings as they dug to find some of the 36 little red birds, which are modeled after the Angry Birds game app your parents were obsessed with like two years ago. Twitter users reported finding cash in the $100 range.

The birds were placed by the mysterious benefactor with the Twitter handle @HiddenCash, who descended into L.A. this weekend to deliver wads of cash to the masses via hidden cash drops in places like Los Feliz, Echo Park, Burbank and the Huntington Library. The benefactor told followers he'd be placing the birds overnight at a beach, though he waited until around 11:45 a.m. today to say which beach. He retweeted images of the lucky winners:
