At noon today, high in the hills of the Coast Range east of Big Sur, three endangered California Condors were released to the wild. They'd been treated for lead poisoning at the LA Zoo. You could watch the event on the Condor cam, which began operating on Monday for scientists and for the general public. At the right time of day, you can watch Condors eat.
