THE CALIFORNIA CONDOR
Birds are my favorite outdoor animals. Mainly because of the birdhouses and feeders we have in the back yard. In answer to a earlier article that I read today I decided to look up the largest bird in the USA because I didn't know. Well come to find out the California Condor is the largest northern American land bird.
The bird the Condor has been reintroduced into the wilds of central and southern California over a period of time because the Condor is one of the rarest species of birds. In mid 2014 its numbers had risen to 439. The Condor is one of the longest living birds with a lifespan upwards to 60 years.
These scavengers wingspan can be upwards to 9.5 feet and its weight up to 26 pounds.
