Junk ingestion and nestling mortality in a reintroduced population of California condors Gymnogyps californianus.
A Californian condor, Gymnogyps californianus, has laid an egg in the wild for the frost time in 15 years, raising hopes among biologists that a viable wild population of the species may again become a reality.
If the condor habitat were somehow restored across the prehistoric breeding range and the species left alone within it for a few decades, Gymnogyps californianus would return as an abundant bird across hundreds of thousands of square miles of the American landscape.
