These videos are of California Condors released by Ventana Wildlife Society in Big Sur, California. The footage was provided by Pandion Entertainment, Inc. during a shoot to film condors feeding on a deer carcass.
The photographer, Bruce Reitherman, waited in his blind to film condors flying over the carcass, then landing nearby, as shown in the first two video sequences. The third video sequence shows just how cautious condors are when first approaching a new carcass. (Hours went by before they actually began feeding.) Then the condors began to feed on the dead deer in a large social group (video sequence 4). At dusk, the birds took flight to spend the night at a nearby roost (video sequence 5).
A special thanks goes to Bruce and Pandion Entertainment for providing the video.
