Arizona has plenty of California transplants, but one in particular attracts a great deal of attention in northern Arizona.

The Art of Transportation features a California condor perched atop the US 89 Navajo Bridge above the Colorado River.

California condors are the largest bird in North America with a wingspan of 9.5 feet! U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services has additional information on California condors.
