A few more condor images
Posted by: DP
Date: July 31, 2018 09:15PM
Here are a few more pictures of our official forum Condor. Here she was posing for everyone when she just started stretching out a wing:



Then out even further. Looked like she was starting her daily yoga routine:



What position is this?



Lastly, I think she was looking for her iPhone:



Here's hoping she can stay with us for some time to come...

Nice photos for those of us who have never seen a condor.

Speaking of condors, today on my bike ride, I saw four Turkey Vultures feeding on what looked like a dead seal carcass on the beach. I took an iPhone picture but I was too far away.

They were black with bald red heads and yellow beaks.

Yep. Another of Nature's clean up crews.

Being bald means that you don't have to worry about dead and rotting flesh getting caught up in your feathers.

Truthfully though, scavengers prefer the "freshly dead", not stuff that's rotting.

Careful there! We have bunches of those Turkey Vultures around here. We love watching them soar. Very graceful in the air.

However, don't get too close to one when it's on the ground. As a defense, they puke up a vile, awful smelling fluid when threatened. you, and any predator would be sorry if you got that near of one. smiley-shocked003

Why not just be honest and enter your own submission as your own.
I just voiced a surprise that no one had offered up the relevant boatyMacboat meme yet.

Turkey vultures eat just about everything except their own.

my county had an issue with hundreds of them roosting in trees over a boat launch parking lot. An oldtimer said it was an easy fix - he shot one and tied the remains to a tree branch nearby. The next day there was not a single bird in sight. They never came back.
