This was a wild bird that one rarely see in the wide open spaces. While in the Grand Canyon I was able the get a sighting and Photograph a California Condor. Please Click on the photo for a larger view. You will be able to see his wing number. They only inhibit in the Grand Canyon area. It is rare to see one for there are not not many in existence in the wild. As of April 2009, there are 322 condors known to be living, including 172 in the wild. They have the largest wingspan of any bird in North America. The life span is 50 years and the most interesting thing to me is their skin color changes with their mood! I sure would not want to meet one with a RED Head!!
