Condors in Big Sur
photographed by Phil Adams - August, 2005
"As great as it was to see these condor so close, the really big thrill was after they took off and we could watch them soaring overheard," said Carole Adams.

Carole and Phil, original PelicanNetwork members, are pioneers of the Friends of the Elephant Seal docent program, and authors of Elephant Seals.

These condors are part of the re-introduction program managed by the Ventana Wilderness Society
