Patricia Bonner had an extraordinary encounter in Zion National Park in Utah with one of the world's 450 or so surviving California condors. “I was hiking in Zion on the Angels Landing Trail and was nearly to the finish," she writes in sharing her photo of this critically endangered, highly intelligent scavenger. "It was early morning. The bird was doing its morning wash-up. He stayed in place for about twenty minutes and I did too! The bird, the view and the hike were amazing.”

California condors once soared over much of North America with their nearly 10-foot wingspans, but because of widespread poaching, habitat loss and lead poisoning—from eating animals shot with lead bullets by hunters—went extinct in the wild in 1987.

"It's migration season for Snowy Owls," writes Beth Finney from western Massachusetts in sharing two of these beautiful photos sent to us in recent weeks from owl-watchers in four U.S. states. The fall migration of snowy owls differs from year to year both in how far south the birds go and how many of the owls leave their far northern nesting grounds. The variation depends on the availability and location of prey (mostly rodents but also some birds). Have you seen or photographed a snowy owl? Let us know. Many thanks to Beth and also to Joe Gliozzo (who took the opening photos in New Jersey), Donna McKnight (New Jersey), Victor Hiltz (Michigan) and John Radloff (Wisconsin) for their shots.
