Post-release Update
December 6, 2021  ventanaws.org

Dian Fossey (1011), Iniko (1031), and Rachel Carson (1042) were released on December 4th (in that order). We thought Iniko would be the first to go, but Dian made the first leap toward freedom followed quickly by Iniko. Rachel took her time and came out about an hour later. They join condor juvies Jane Goodall, Jan Hamber and Rosalie Barrrow Edge, who were eager to reconnect with their old flight pen pals released in November.

All 3 of the newbies roosted together off the ground their first night. ❤️

In December untagged wild chicks start showing up with mom and dad on the Big Sur cam. The pairs with untagged chicks are

Nomad #574 & Miracle #538 (Chick 1104)
Ferdinand #652 & 550 (Chick 1095) - mate black tag, no name
Amigo #204 & Kodama #646 (Chick 1089)
We believe Junipero #663 with a leg injury is tending to his chick 1077
