This video is from a remote camera that is set up to capture California condors in the act of feeding at Pinnacles National Monument. This clip shows a subadult condor pulling out the heart from the chest cavity of a deer and devouring it. The smaller black birds are ravens to give you an idea of how large a condor is. Condor #336 became ill in September 2008, and was unable to fly anymore. After being captured for examination, subsequent tests showed elevated lead levels in the blood. She died at the LA Zoo shortly thereafter and necropsy results demonstrated that lead poisoning was responsible for her death..
