CONDOR GIANT AMONG BIRDS
California Sptcles lleved to Haw
Excuded In Slse Its Couiln of
Naturalists have determined that
the California condor exceeds In nlste
its cousin, the condor of the Andes of
South America, and U larger than the
giant or wandering albatross: wblch
travels the ocean lanes of tlie Pacific,
south of the equator. The extreme
wing expanse of tlie California condor
is close to twelve feet. Through care
ful measurements, the naturalist
learned that tho 'ondor of the aouth
ern countries Is smaller In all respects.
One of these largest birds that fly
Is on exhibition In the Natural His
tory museum at San Diego, Oil. Be
side tie condor, the turkey buzzard, a
smaller relative, appears to be a
dwarf. Bntli birds are carrion enters,
a fact which has contributed substan
tially, to the near extinction of the
condor. NuluralNts of earlier years
record that tin condor was once fairly
common In California.
