The Pueblo Chieftain reports the member of the vulture family was checked out at the Pueblo Nature and Raptor Center on Sunday night before being sent Tuesday morning to the Peregrine Fund in Arizona.
Pueblo Nature and Raptor Center director Diana Miller says the California condor is one of the most endangered species in the world.
Miller said the condor found in Colorado was among several she saw released into the wild at the Grand Canyon in September. She says it probably got pulled along by recent storms, getting weak and disoriented before landing in Colorado.
The condor is in good condition, Miller said, though a little skinny.
