Condors pair for life and breed once every two years, producing
only one egg.
Condors roost, or sleep, in large groups. They "talk" to each other with hisses, growls, grunts, and body language.
From tip to tip, their wings can stretch up to 9 feet.
Instead of flapping their wings, condors soar on wind currents.
Condors are scavengers, which means they eat animals that
are already dead. But they don't rely on their sense of smell. They
watch for other scavengers eating dead animals.
In 1982, there were fewer than 25 California condors left
in the wild. Today, there are about 200.
