California Condor in Wyoming?

Laramie, Wy – Birders and biologists are trying to confirm two reports of a California condor near Alcova Reservoir.
In recent days, two people have reported seeing the giant scavengers near the reservoir.
But according ton Bruce Dudley of the Audubon Center at Garden Creek, so far nothing has been confirmed.
California condors once numbered in the thousands, but the species is still recovering after their population fell to just a couple dozen in the early 1980s.
Although most remain in the steep slopes and cliffs of California, they might just migrate to a place like Alcova Reservoir.
That's according to state Game and Fish biologist Andrea Cerovski. She says the steep slopes and cliffs around the reservoir would make for good condor habitat.
