Remarkable story and video of wild condor chick. 

Condor Chick Has Two Mommies:  http://www.audubon.org/news/condor-chick-has-two-mommies


Thanks, T40!

In the "Other Raptor Cams and Info" board in Forum, there is a thread for the very same Condor nest and chick discussed in the Audubon article posted above by T40 today.  The name of the Forum thread for that wild California Condor nest and about-to-fledge chick is, "Big Sur, California Condors: Ventana Wildlife Society Camera - 2015" and I quoted T40's post from here to there today at:
http://www.raptorresource.org/forum/index.php/topic,2058.msg438954.html#msg438954


That article posted today by T40 is an exceptionally good article for anyone to read who is interested in the California Condor's plight and attempts to save it from extinction.  There is some incredible new info in it!

Plight of the Condor: A photographer?s pursuit of an endangered species. What a remarkable mission he's on - to get a photo of every condor in the wild.

The annual fall migration of raptors -- eagles, hawks, falcons and ospreys -- is one of Iowa?s more popular wildlife shows. Nice article.

OUTSTANDING!

Utility installs insulators to 'eagle proof' power lines. Work is an attempt to stop more electrocutions of famous Decorah eagles.

Golden Eagle with transmitter visits Cannon Falls, Minnesota. Hope the National Eagle Center is keeping an eye out for bald eagles with transmitters!
