Spot the Nest!
Can you see the nest for the trees?!
Take a careful look at the tree in the left side of the photo. The cavity is home to a new nest!
Beak Boy (condor #168) and his mate, Solo (condor #208), picked a new redwood nest tree this year, just a couple hundred feet from their 2009 nest tree.
I watched in amazement as Beak Boy contortioned himself to get inside the redwood nest cavity, incredible flexibility for such large birds.
This is our seventh nest in central CA this year (5-6 of which are still active, two with nestlings). Big kudos to fellow condor crew members- David, Gaby, and Katie, for helping find this pair’s new nest…a real team effort.
