NOAA Photo Library Image - anim1419

Two California condors. All condors are tagged and monitored. Condors sometimes come to the Piedras Blancas to scavenge on dead, beached marine mammals. At one time there were only twenty-two condors left alive but through protection and a captive breeding program, now over 200 condors soar over the skies of southern and central California and another 179 live in captivity.
