Another french cover this time a California's Condor (Gymnogyps californianus) stamp issued in 2009.
The Condor now lives only in a few places in North America. This large vulture can live up to 50 years and it has a bald head and black plumage. On the underside of its wings it has white patches. It feeds on dead mammals. Condors almost became extinct thanks to humans but a conservation project help to increase their numbers.
