Ecuador has plenty of condors and big birds around but I didn't get to see any upclose in the wild, so I only got to see them in the park. Such a majestic bird!


I saw one flying over my house yesterday, and see them almost everyday, as there is a group of them living in a park "Cerro San Cristóbal" in the middle of Santiago. Big and beautiful.
Are they only in captivity there?
