California Condor (Gymnogyps californianus)

I first caught a brief glimps of a California Condor in the Grand Canyon in 2009. In 2011, on a trip to California, I decided to devote a day to try to get better looks at the Condors that live south of Monterey - near Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park on Route 1. I know, these shots are a little soft. What the heck? I SAW the Condors! About a dozen birds, adults and a few juveniles soared up and down the coast, just before sunset.
