California Condor Chick Greets The Day
Rise and shine with the Hutton's Bowl California Condor chick! You might notice that the chick's bare head and neck are just beginning to turn a dark gray to blackish color. As the chick develops into its juvenile plumage, these regions become covered in short, gray down. Over the nest 7–8 years, the coloration of the head and neck will grade from a pinkish-gray to a bright blend of pink, red, purple, yellow, and orange that's typical of an adult condor!
