I was in CA in March. Located 3 Condors soaring in Pinnacles. (3)06 and
(4)11, 2 of the oldest birds in that flock and one other (soaring with
one of the above).

We were not there at dawn/dusk, apparently the best observation times.
They were observed from the trail just west of the campground and on
the Gulch trail to the north.

Both days at Pinnacles were sunny and warm, our one day on the Big Sur
coast was overcast.
