California Condor (two photos)
Gymnogyps californianus

California Condor in Utah
This California Condor was a life bird for me.  Sometimes these fragile birds are
seen from the overlook points along the drive to Kolob Reservoir in southern Utah. 
This certainly saves a trip to the Arizona Strip to try to find them.

 We had pulled over to check a canyon overlook for condors and
found none, flying or perching, down over the edge.  I turned around,
started for the car, glanced up at some huge evergreens next to the
road and there was magnificent #81.  What a fantastic experience!
