Getting to know the "Pico el Águila", home of the Andean Condor, State. Merida, Venezuela

in #travel5 years ago
This post is dedicated to one of the most impressive birds I have ever seen in my life, the Andean Condor, I had the opportunity to be near them during my visit to the famous "Pico el Aguila", located in one of the highest mountains in the state of Merida, Venezuela.


This bird lives in mountainous places of low temperatures, can weigh up to 15 kg, are usually black, but have a characteristic white "collar", in addition to some marks of the same color on the wings. Like their relatives, Californian condors, Andean condors have bald heads. These birds are vultures, they usually feed on carrion, large animals (wild or domesticated), sometimes they attack the nests of other birds where they lay their eggs.


These long-lived birds have survived more than 75 years in captivity, but they breed slowly. Each breeding pair has only one calf every two years, and both parents must take care of it for a full year.

In the images you can visualize the cold weather that exists in these mountains (-5°C).


Thankful for your visit to my blog, I look forward to your comments, I will take them with pleasure to continue improving in each of my publications.

Es hermosa, creo que esta criatura debe ser liberada y no encerrada para exhibirla como un mero trofeo natural si no admirarla en su naturaleza libre, no en una impuesta por nosotros, fura de eso cool tu experiencia.

Totalmente de acuerdo amigo, sólo que al ser una especie en extinción muchos entes gubernamentales y parques lo preservan para garantizar y preservar su especie.

Impresionantemente hermoso ... asi como mi pais. Gracias por compartir estas bellas imagenes. Saludos.

Me alegra que te guste mi publicación amiga @yadira, te deseo un hermoso día.

Excelentes fotos @thetiger, me encanta ir allá, casi siempre vamos a principio de cada año, estar en el pico del águila es emocionante sus paisajes y aunque es un lugar tan pequeño veo como mucha gente lo visita. Tuve la oportunidad de que una vez estaba cayendo granizo y fue demasiado emocionante, ahhhh también en ese lugar cuando hace mucho frío debes caminar lento porque la falta de aire te ahoga. Me encantó recordar momentos.

Gracias por tu comentario amiga, espero puedas visitarlo pronto, es espectacular. Saludos.
