    It is! Theres only a very few at night. This is the lastest/darkest by far. Wonder why - so dangerous!

    GPS data show they sometimes fly late if wind conditions are good. Also, these cams accentuate the darkness in BW mode. It is prob twilight

    very eerie and neat! You can see their eyes glowing in flash. We have about 3 photos of condors at night/dusk, total. This is first pair 😃

    An early start on a midnight feast - someone has to do the set up.
