Reporting a Condor Sighting
How can I tell if the bird I saw is a condor?
Should I report a condor sighting?
If you see condors that are not engaging in dangerous behavior, you are welcome to report those observations as well. Any condor sightings outside the Pinnacles boundaries will help us keep track of their movements and activities. You can send an email or call (831)389-4486 ext. 224.
If you see a condor on your property, remember that although they are large, they pose no threat to humans, pets, or livestock. If you've been visited by condors on your ranch or hunting property, please remember that state law may require switching to non-lead ammunition within condor range, as lead poisoning is one of the biggest threats to California condors in the wild.
Please feel free to contact us with questions about California condors by sending an email or calling one of the phone numbers listed above.
