Ugly as sin...
...but impressive. That's the California Condor. And I just saw one. On the onramp to 280, of all places, trying to kidnap some roadkill (yum) with an envious, but obviously overmatched crow watching from a few feet away. I'm not 100% certain it was a condor but it was huge, had that ugly red face, and definitely looked like the gargoyle pictured here. I gotta admit, I'm hoping it was a condor because if so it was a really cool unexpected sighting. If it wasn't a condor, I'm not sure what it was.

Whoa... if that was a condor, how very cool.

If it wasn't a condor... run!!!

Let's say it was for sure a condor and not a big stupid turkey vulture.

Condors are cool, while turkey vultures are, well, nast.
