|Yes, before this encounter, I had only seen (outside of zoos) the Calif. Condor once while rafting the Grand Canyon in the late 1970s.
There were 4 Condors perched on cliff rocks right next to Highway 1, somewhere north of Lucia. Obviously they had been bred then released. I am concerned they did not seem afraid of humans which may not bode well for their future.
