Some years ago the wife and I headed up to San Pedro Martir to camp. I must say that I was giddy with anticipation at the thought of seeing the Condors in their natural habitat. After four solid days of hiking and looking around that included a trip up into the observatory tower with the director we finally left without a single sighting. I remember on the drive down the mountain commenting to the wife that we must be very unlucky. About a week or two or three later we received the San Diego Wild Animal Park/Zoo newsletter and there were photos and a story about how they had 'wrangled' all the SPM condors and had done blood tests and fitted them with new tracking devices and it was all happening why we were there. :fire:

We are planning a trip back in the very near future. :cool::saint::dudette:

Nice picture!


after checking vital signs, better buy some of that med-evac insurance that will bring in the helo to whisk you to a state of the art medical facility!

Incredible photo! National Geographic worthy. Is there a way to share the image and credit you?
