Artist Auctions "Reuniting" For The Birds

"Reuniting" is the original block print art from the new children's book "A Perfect Day for an Albatross" by author and artist Caren Loebel-Fried. Caren's creations were inspired by her time volunteering to census albatross populations on Midway Atoll, which inhabits seventy-two percent of the world's nesting population of Laysan Albatross. She has generously decided to donate the proceeds of the auction, which will be active through October 31, 2017, to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

4-month Health Check Report: Condor Chick Looking Healthy

The results are in! We’re excited to report that the Devils Gate chick received a healthy designation from biologists at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Santa Barbara Zoo during her 4-month health check on August 8, 2017. Weighing in at a sizable 16.5 pounds (adult females are typically 18 pounds), a feisty #871 showed normal behavior of a heathy condor nestling, and was considered to be in great overall condition. Now at over six months of age, #871 is nearly finished molting into her juvenile plumage and should be preparing to fledge at any time within the next 1–4 weeks!
