The Bridge Keeper Of Souls

The Bridge Keeper Of Souls

Condors are carrion eaters, the harvester of desert’s soul, eating death for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yet, they are a completely non-aggressive character. They lack the strong talons and beaks of hawks and eagles and depend on finding carcasses for food, and have never been known to attack a living animal. They will commonly gorge themselves when feeding so that they may go days without eating. With scarcely a wing flap, as they soar over the deserts to the seacoast and cresting the highest peaks and spanning the most foreboding terrain, they can travel up to 140 miles per day in search of a meal. While their keen eyesight helps them locate food, they are also keen observers of other scavengers like Turkey Vultures and Golden Eagles, and Common Ravens.
