My search for information about the California condor has turned up some sources that surprised me.
A number of professional journals serve the managers, keepers, scientists, and others who work in the world’s zoos. In this post, I note items about the California condor from 2 of these “trade” publications.
Color photos reveal the colorful side – mostly the head and neck – of the California condor.
The 12 excellent photos in this post show a California condor being a California condor (one of the photos shows a pair of condors). These photos deserve to be seen, not hidden away on bookshelves or in boxes.
In a previous post (Cover art from Cooper Ornithological Society/Club publications), I described how the illustrations of the California condor on the covers of publications of the Cooper Ornithological Society/Club reflected the state of ornithological science over the course of the 20th century. Here I present some additional art from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
