I wanted to go back to the bird theme. I'm not going to give any clues except the pictures because this should be a very easy one.
Where am I?
The kind of bird should be easy, but let's name it.
Bonus points for any other info on the bird in these pictures.
We’ve spent a little time in Saint Louis on two occasions. First was my niece’s wedding and we went for that unique elevator ride at the Gateway Arch and the second time was to spend time with our niece and her family several years later.
So where am I?
What is the nick name of the fledgling?
This is a picture that I took about 45 years ago, a very lucky snapshot of an Andean Condor in flight. By weight (up to 33 pounds) and wingspan (close to 11 feet), these are the world's largest birds that are capable of flight.
It is extremely rare to see them in this particular location, even way back then. You'll note that there is a city at the base of these mountains. Although it's not visible in the picture, the blue haze on the horizon is the sea.
This will be a challenge, a true test of your investigative abilities, but in truth, there is only one place in the world that this could be.
Where am I?
Name the city!
And here's a real trick question: What mountains are these?

That was a great opportunity, for sure; the young ones of just about every species are cute to watch--even condors! The grown-up birds are so darned ugly, you can almost forgive them their lack of table manners.
A thousand condors is a whale of a milestone. It's pretty great to see a program like that making such wonderful progress!
