This post is about a feature-length documentary film that was released in theaters in 1953. Of course, the film includes the California condor.
Since 1900 and continuing today, the scientific journal Condor, named after the California condor, has been publishing significant information about birds. In this post I show some excellent photos of California condors from this publication, including the photo captions.
By chance, the 8 photos here are evenly split between the first and last quarters of the 20th century. Together, these photos capture aspects of the lives of California condors and humans’ sense of these birds.
This post includes 8 creative items that represent humans’ interest in and conception of the California condor.
In the 1980s, an Italian poem inspired by the California condor was set to music. Here’s the story.
Ever interested in the language that humans choose when discussing the California condor, here I consider items published with the word “comeback” in the title. These span several decades.
