OA is C.

But isn't condor plural, and hence require their?

Example:
These condor are under the protection of the department of the interior.

We wouldn't say:
These condor is under the protection of the department of the interior.

'their' is the wrong pronoun. California condor is singular as it's a collective noun that refers to a particular family of condors. So (A), (B) are out.
(E) is also out as there is a problem with the sentence when it joins the non-underline portion of the sentece. It would only be correct if the sentence was "condor's daily movements, ...."
Between C and D, C is better as it has parallelism.
