Condors at the Grand Canyon

Mature California Condor with a pink head and black feathers perched on the edge of a limestone cliff. Reddish canyon rocks beyond.

An update from the National Park Service.

Thanks for sharing this Michael. The California Condor has made quite a comeback from the brink of extinction. I guess it is still on the precipice of extinction, but I think at one time they thought there were only about 30 left. They are remarkable creatures but given the details on their late sexual maturity, and sporadic breeding, it is even more a miracle that they have survived.

You're welcome. They are magnificent birds.
