The California Condor – a Super Scavenger

So, for all you CondorWatchers out there I thought it would be fun for you to see a series of feeding station photos that illustrate just how quickly a group of condors can pick clean a carcass.  Scroll through this series and see that after ~2 hours all that was left of the carcass was the bone that was staked to the ground!

As Wreness would say “you win a Fish!” if you have classified any of the photos shown here in the series on CondorWatch.

Thanks to everyone on CondorWatch for helping us classify photos – we couldn’t do this without you!
