20130825-153530.jpg

Have you ever seen a California condor up close and personal? Well, come to Ventana Wildlife Society’s Feathers in Flight event on Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at Rancho Grande in Big Sur and meet “Dolly” a young condor from the Los Angeles Zoo making her first appearance in central California. This is the first time a live condor will be on public display at a private event such as this one. This is truly so unique that it is actually hard to believe. But it’s true! Tickets are $75 per person and ages 12 and under attend free. Call Cathy Hamilton at 831-455-9514 or send her an email at cathyhamilton@ventanawsorg to sign up. All proceeds directly benefit California condor recovery Big Sur.

  1. What an incredible bird. Wish the event was just a wee bit closer… :(

  2. Two splendid photographs, thank you so much, Kate. The second is damn touching, what a relationship they must have, barearmed man under the talons. I can don’t often risk that with my 20 lb house cat.
    Decades ago I was friends with NJ Ranger who captured, banded, and went hang-gliding with eagles! Huge birds have a very high tolerance level which I think must come from knowing what damage they can do if they choose. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Good lesson.
