California Condor,   Photo Image # CACO 31

These awesome birds with a huge wingspread of 9+ feet are making their comeback into the wild.  This #R7 male California Condor was hatched in captivity April 29, 1994 and released into the wild on August 29, 1995.  He fathered the first surviving wild chick which hatched in April, 2004, and fathered another chick in 2009 which has also sucessfully fledged.  Russ took the picture of this California Condor flying in April, 2000.
