California Condors by Laura Hamilton Waxman

California Condors circle thousands of feet above the ground. These animals use their sharp eyesight to spot food down below. California condors are the largest flying creatures in North America. The California condor is a kind of bird. All birds have feathers and beaks. They are all warm-blooded and lay hard-shelled eggs. But birds have many differences too. Find out what a California condor has in common with a turkey vulture or a black swift. Discover what sets a California condor apart from a brown-headed cowbird or a green-headed tanager. Check out the comparison charts and use your compare-and-contrast skills to explore more bird traits!
