This video from the USA says about itself:

Male Condor #206 Arrives For Long Feeding Event – August 20, 2017

Watch highlights of a nearly 15-minute-long feeding session for condor chick #871. The visit starts with a flashy entrance by the adult male #206 and is complete with everything you’d expect from a condor feeding event: plenty of wing-begging, grunting, regurgitation, and head rubbing!

The California Condor cam is a collaboration between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Santa Barbara Zoo, the Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

Thanks for watching!

About the Nest

This condor nest, known as the Devil’s Gate nest, is located in the Los Padres National Forest, near Hopper Mountain National Wildlife Refuge. The parents of the chick in the Devil’s Gate nest are mom #513 and dad #206. Dad #206 hatched at the Los Angeles Zoo in 1999 and mom #513 hatched at the World Center for Birds of Prey in Boise Idaho in 2009. This is their third nesting attempt together but they have yet to successfully fledge a chick.

In 2003, Northern California’s Yurok Tribe initiated efforts to reintroduce California condors on their lands. While wild condors have not existed in the region for more than a hundred years, a new study suggests that hunters transitioning from lead to non-lead ammunition may allow these apex scavengers to succeed there once again: here.
