California Condors
By Vickie Chao
Rewritten as a short reader by Cindy Grigg
  

1     The California condor is our country's largest flying bird. Condors may measure up to 4.6 feet in body length. They may weigh 25 pounds. Their wingspan measures an incredible 9.5 feet! California condors are superb flyers. Condors' top speed is 55 miles per hour. They fly as fast as many cars travel on highways.
 
2     California condors are vultures. Even though they feed on dead animals, they are very tidy. After each feeding, they like to take a bath in rock pools. They may spend hours preening and drying their feathers. When there is no water, they rub their heads and necks against grasses, rocks, or tree branches.
