Just a short note to commemorate International Vulture Awareness Day –
My mother shot this photo of two California Condors (Gymnogyps californianus) near Big Sur a few weeks ago:
Here is how she described her experience:
Sunday was a real remarkable day. 6 or 7 condors soaring over the cliffs, water and roosting on a luxury home south of Nepenthe. We also at the same time had a pod of dolphin below us . It was unreal. They were so close I couldn’t believe my eyes and almost fell down a cliff I got too close to. It was a good day.
