photoblog image I've run out of cats....

I've run out of cats....

                                 For now anyway, so thought I'd show you this. This is the release point in the Vermilion cliffs, Arizona, where they release Condors back into the wild. Almost wiped out in California, they have a very successful breeding program here. We have been lucky enough to see them in the wild, they are very impressive.

It always gives me a thrill to see raptors in the wild, Frank, bit I have never seen one with a wingspan as big as the Condors.
Frank L Croston.: It was a big thrill to see these in the wild the first time, Ray. They are magnificent birds.

I love your sense of humour for I think this Condor will think that cats are good as a dessert....so that is why you don't see any cats here... wink
I love this picture though for it gives scale to this majestic flying animal.
Frank L Croston.: Probably, Astrid, I've seen very few 'outside' cats here.

Fabulous birds, I have only seen them in captivity but I well remember a wonderful TV programme "The Flight of the Condor."
Frank L Croston.: I remember that, Chris. It was a great thrill the first time I saw these birds.
Sure do love the graphic here for comparison purposes. I read a story this week where an eagle robbed a red-tail hawk's nest. For some reason one hawk did not get eaten and is being raised in the nest with eagles.

Frank L Croston.: great video, Mary, I hope the little guy makes it.
Evan way up in the sky I bet these magnificent creatures look huge.
Frank L Croston.: They do, Brian, close up they are HUGE!
smile This will do! I'm so glad you are showing this. Those Condors are remarkable!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, that they are!
