As the largest bird in North America, California Condors possess an impressive 91/2 foot wingspan, an average weight of 20 pounds, and a longevity of 60 years.  Condors are a highly intelligent and social bird, inquisitive and playful.  They have keen eyesight and fly up to 150 miles in  search of carrion, preferring carcasses of large mammals like bison, deer, whales and seals.

Masters of air currents, California Condors majestically sailed the skies for thousands of years until the 1900's when populations plummeted due to lead and pesticide poisoning, shooting, and habitat loss.  Through the dedicated work of individuals, government agencies and private foundations, the Condor Recovery Project has helped bring the California Condor back from near extinction.
