With a wingspan of 10 feet, a condor seems too large to fly. And yet, winds carry it so efficiently that it may only need to flap once an hour. The world came very close to losing the California condor. At one point, only 30 were left. Readers will find out why these birds were so close to extinction and what was done to bring them back. Photographs show these birds of prey as they are.
