What are the California condors behavior?
Behavior. California Condors can cover hundreds of miles in one flight as they soar for hours at a time, looking for carrion. These long-distance travelers pair off during the breeding season but are highly social at roosting, bathing, and feeding sites; individuals recognize one another.
How many California condors exist?
California condors live in rocky, forested regions including canyons, gorges and mountains. The California condor population steadily declined during the 20th century until there were only about 27 known to exist in the world. In 2017, there were 290 wild condors and 173 in captivity.
Is a California condor a carnivore?
These birds are carnivores and scavengers, feeding on carcasses of mammals of medium to large size. California condors are monogamous and pairs stay together for life. They nest in crevices or caves in cliffs, often close to open sites for ease of landing. They do not nest in colonies and breed only once every two years.
Does the California condor have natural predators?
California Condors have few natural predators due to their size. However, large terrestrial predators such as mountain lions, black bears, coyotes, and bobcats have been known to hunt and kill adult and juvenile condors. The Golden Eagle is the only bird that poses a threat to adult, juvenile, and young fledglings.
