On the way to Page last week we stopped at Navajo Bridge which crosses the Colorado River at Marble Canyon. Almost always a good place to see California condors.
But don’t just look into the sky as they do tend to roost under the bridge on the girders.
We got lucky and saw three condors, #70 a 19 year-old female…
…and #73 an 8 year-old male, plus one unknown in elusive flight.
These two were both very good at trying to hide from the camera.
Visitors to the North Rim always ask where to see condors.
It is possible, but they are more often seen on the more crowded South Rim.
Condors are curious and like crowds, better chance of something dead to eat.
During summer many condors hang out by Kolb Terrace Reservoir near Zion National Park and are seen soaring above the Angel’s Landing trail. (Probably looking for dead hikers as the trail is steep and difficult.)
Navajo Bridge also provides an excellent view of the Colorado River.
