They have a 10.5 foot wingspan, and the greatest wingspan of any land bird. I find them awesome too, and I really like drawing and painting their faces, and trying to get it just right. This one I am very happy with. I wish someone would hire me to illustrate a book about birds that combined photographs, and illustrations and paintings. All these paintings and drawings are residing in the Scrapbooks I painted them on. I just ordered 6 new Canson Scrapbooks because I'm down to the last one. That cost over $100.00, but I don't care because I don't want to stop this work. Maybe I should print up some prints...I have an over sized printer I've never used. It prints up to 13"wide by 22", I think. It just seems sad the art work is never seen live by anyone but myself and my husband. Like Scarlet O'Hara, "Oh, I will think about it tomorrow!" I have two paintings almost finished of vulture, and condor that are calling to me.
Lots of people on here also have a store on etsy.com I've never used their service myself but I've heard good things both on the internet and from irl friends. Might want to check it out sometime since it seems like a viable income source.
When I was in grade school, we had to do a report on an endangered animal. Mine was on the California Condor
