according to the peregrine fund, there were, not too long ago, only 22 remaining california condors (in 1982). today, there are over 300.
we saw at least a dozen of them at the grand canyon the other day. amazing birds, with a wingspan of up to 9 and a half feet. they glided along the canyon edge, never moving their wings. absolutely stunning birds.
sure would have been a shame if they hadn’t been saved.
