First known visit by California Condors to Lick Observatory, June 21, 2011


The Condors appeared in the forenoon but left around 1 PM and were present again the next morning.
A cooling marine breeze blew all night and the next morning they were nowhere to be seen.
Some of them tried to pick the loose paint off the fire watch tower.
Another one seemed to want to gain access to the Nickel Reflector by reaching up under the dome flashing.
