Princess Elevates Her Game!

After spending a few days close to the ground, we are happy to report that Princess made it safely in to the tree canopy near her nest. We spotted her in a tree last week and she looking great. We even saw her Dad, 167, coming in to visit her briefly. As of today, Princess was still in the same area but has moved to a new tree, so things continue to look up for her!

Another exciting observation...we spotted an untagged juvenile condor flying over the coast. We believe it's condor chick #787 but can't confirm it just yet. Stay tuned!
