Distribution and use of resting roost by Andean condors Vultur gryphus in Chilean Patagonia Distribucion y uso de dormideros por el condor andino Vultur gryphus en Patagonia chilena

Andean Condors (Vultur gyphus) are considered as vulnerable in much of their distributional range. Their roosts offer the opportunity to study and conserve their local populations. During the years 2001-2003, I searched for active roosts used by condors in the chilean Patagonia, and I described quantitatively their daily and seasonal use of them. Seasonally, the major abundance of condors was found during the summer months. Adults represented the 53.2% of the population, juveniles are the 12.4% and the immatures the 34.4%. In comparison with the populations of the northern part of their distribution range, in the southern part of South America, Andean Condors do not seems to be declining in numbers, but the importance of roosts should be taken into account for future monitoring and conservation planning.
