The article reports on the discovery of California condors in California. A biologist hiking in a California redwood forest recently found a pair of nesting California condors. No one has seen the endangered birds in a nest in more than 100 years. The discovery of the condor couple's nest may indicate that the endangered birds are coming back from the brink of extinction.
