California Condor On The Colorado Close-up

Post by Death Valley Dazed » Sat Apr 06, 2019 7:11 am

What luck to come across a California Condor perched high above the Colorado River in Northern Arizona as it soared into the canyon below. April 2019 on a lovely spring afternoon. The condors are making a successful comeback!

Very cool, lots of Condors are in AZ. I run Big Sur marathon, a 26.2 mile run from Pfiefer Big Sur Park to Carmel, along Hwy 1 and it is not unusual to see condors along the course. Very ugly, but impressive birds.

They taste like hell and are tough and gamy, best to simply look at.
