Mother and Son bond is strong

Condor 222 has been escorting her young fledgling son, #773, above the nest area in recent days. Condor #773 was the first chick to fledge this year in Big Sur. Three other chicks still have yet to be confirmed fledged so lots more action to be had this season. Condor #773 is well ahead of the curve having already sustained lengthy flights in the vicinity of the nest and ridges above. Always helps build confidence to have a parent keeping the ever so watchful eye :)
