California Condor 
Gymnogyps californianus

This is the largest bird in North America, equal in weight to its Andean cousin.
Found only in the costal ranges of Northern and Southern California; where its
strength is not much above 50 individuals, making it one of the rarest birds in the
world. Doesn't breed until it's 6 years old and then only lays 1 egg; but it may live for
half a century.
Length: 50 inches.
