The California condor has the largest wingspan of all flying birds on earth today, with a spread of over nine feet (3 m). This bird is back from the brink of extinction, thanks to the condor breeding program at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Athough they are related to vultures, the condor is much larger. Adults have a reddish head, while the head of juveniles is dark (dusky). Their native habitat in California is the south Coast Ranges bordering the San Joaquin Valley.
