Male Parent Visits and Feeds Nestling
The Condor nestling has been well fed this week. Parent visits have been observed on 8/21, 8/26 and 8/27. Here is a clip from the male parent #509 as he joins the nestling in the afternoon of August 27th. Condors are scavengers that eat carrion of land and marine mammals such as deer, cattle, pigs, rabbits, sea lions, and whales. Young are fed by regurgitation. The male parent spent about 10 minutes with the nestling on this visit.
