The California condor has found its way on to beautiful postage stamps in recent years. Some of the condor images on these stamps are by prominent wildlife artists.
A pair of stamps from Chad show the condor (right) and cousin turkey vulture:
This pair is titled “aigles”, French for eagles. Perhaps the term is referring to birds of prey, a category that some apply to eagles and vultures.
The condors are not actually on this 2012 stamp, but the images of the adult and chick are excellent:
The title translates from Portuguese as “endangered raptors”. The birds shown represent species from the Old and New Worlds.
The title of this 2009 ensemble translates as “extinct and endangered animals”:
The artist is Christophe Drochon. Notably, the condor on the stamp itself (in flight) is a juvenile. An adult California condor is also shown.
The last 2 stamps in this post are curiosities. Despite the caption, the bird on this stamp is that of an Andean condor, as indicated by the white ruff:
The scientific species name is also incorrect (it should be californianus, not californiacus).
