-Notes: The California condor is a New World vulture native to North America and historically ranged the entire Pacific coast. The largest flying bird in North America, the condor became extinct in the wild in the late 1980’s due to lead poisoning, habitat destruction and poaching. An intensive conservation program led by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service sought to collect all remaining wild condors for a captive breeding program in an effort to save the species. The success of the program resulted in the re-introduction of condors to the wild in 1992, with populations concentrated in central and coastal California. Reaching up to 4ft (121cm) in length with a 9ft (274cm) wingspan, these birds have black plumage with white patches on the underside of the wing and orange-red bare skin on the head and neck. 1-part skull (jaw glued to cranium).
