Watch Live As A Wild Condor Grows Up

For the first time, people who tuned in to the Lab’s live California Condor cam on the morning of April 4 got to see a condor chick hatch! The 22-year-old female condor, #111, and her 7-year-old mate, #509, are raising the chick hatched from a captive-bred egg produced by the California Condor Recovery Program. The pair’s own egg disappeared in March, most likely taken by a predator. The nest cave is located at the Hopper Mountain National Wildlife Refuge in Ventura County, California.

Live Chat About The Condors

Visit the cam page to ask questions about the birds during a live online video chat with condor biologists on April 14, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time/1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
