I saw two California condors flying over the canyon today. I suspect they were coming from the feeding site that the Ventana Wildlife Society is using to provide clean, supplementary food as part of their condor recovery program. These may be the parents of a chick that is growing up not too far from Big Creek.
Feeding the condors provides a source of lead-free food and is an attempt to keep them away from human habitations such as the town of Big Sur. There is a motion camera next to one of the feeding sites. You can see pictures of condors and read the latest news about them on our condor news page.
