Abstract

The New York fossils show that this bird was able to live in a colder climate and in a boreal, coniferous setting at a time when appropriate food (large mammal carrion) was available. The California Condor has suffered a greater reduction about 11,000 yr B.P. when the extinction of many North American large mammals resulted in severely reduced availability of food for the California Condor and other large scavenging birds
