This Valentine’s Day, we had a wonderful time searching for Condors at Pinnacles National Park. Although the day started slow, we ended up with absolutely amazing views of Condors throughout the day. We saw at least 8 individuals and some really cool interactions between one two-year old bird and a playful Common Raven.
After preening for a while, a Common Raven flew up to this Condor’s pillar…
…and tried to pull a feather out of his wing!
After chasing the Raven off, the Condor returned to scratching his head…
Until his new “friend” showed up again.
Which was not exactly appreciated by our Condor.
Finally, the Condor got a little tired of the mischievous Raven trying to steal his feathers and soared off into the blue skies.
