Kiva – Condor


Condors have been reintroduced to Northern Arizona and among other places, live in the Grand Canyon.  Their ugly ( to my eye) face is naked because they are dipping their heads into the carrion when they feed and feathers would just get in the way.   An air mail envelope seemed right for a condor……….  Conveniently a Sendak stamp of the Wild Thing was official US first class postage at the time : )
