“No, that’s not a conder” I reply to a visitor, “that’s a Raven.”
“No, that’s not a condor, that’s a turkey vulture with black leading edge on the underwings and silvery secondary feathers.”
“Oh Yes, now That’s a condor. Note the white leading edge on the wings.”
As I finished the archeology talk at Walhalla overlook Saturday visitors spotted two California condors soaring overhead.
I ran for my camera and tried to zoom in on them 100s of feet above.
Even visitors with binoculars couldn’t read their numbers.
This is the first time this season I’ve seen condors in the park. What a glorious sight. Just another day for a Ranger at Grand Canyon National Park.
