They are closely related yes. But you wouldn't say Hey look at those turkey condors flying over head when refering to a turkey vulture. Nor would you say Hey look at that California Vulture stuck in those power lines when referring to a California Condor.
It's like the difference between a largemouth and small mouth bass. both are bass but very different. Both are members of the black bass family.
I know it is splitting hairs here but a real bird watcher (i'm not one) surely would have a problem with the thread title here calling them out but having a picture of a vulture in there instead. Vultures are FAR more common than condors.

Very very cool. Thanks for posting. Awesome.
A condor is a vulture. That doesn't mean that a vulture is a condor. I think you are getting confused.
There are many types of vultures. A condor is one of them.
Saying that it's not a condor, and is a vulture is silly. A condor is a vulture.
Was his number #23?
Here's the video:
Regarding some of the comments. The chick talking in the video is a volunteer who is recording data on the condors in that particular area of the canyon. Apparently he's very young and they are concerned because he doesn't seem to be afraid of people. She claims that he's never been touched but he was tagged so I'm not sure how he could never have been touched.

No, No, i think you're confused confusing.
let me get this straignt,
Condor > Vulture ?
I stand corrected. It could be a young Condor with those colors. I was affraid of that. Plus I doubt their would be much tracking of regular vultures.
