My husband Eric & I were on walkabout yesterday, wandering around the northern part of Arizona. We started in Flagstaff and headed north, first driving through the Navajo reservation.
It gives an incredible bird's eye view of the river below!
On our way back across the bridge to the car, I thought I saw someone sitting on the structure underneath the car bridge. On closer look though, it was a huge, huge bird! Yes, I had spotted a California Condor!!
83 of those are in the Arizona/Utah area.
There was another couple also watching Mr. 54 here, who let me know that he and his mate evidently had a nest on the cliffs upstream, visible from the bridge. So I began to scan the cliffs...
Ah ha! The droppings gave it away.
I'll write another entry about the rest of our day's travels tomorrow. Stay tuned!
