Pinnacles National Park announced that for the third straight year, there is a California condor nest at the park.
The national park made the announcement on social media Friday afternoon, noting on Facebook how the condor nest had been confirmed on Jan. 31 “when biologists were able to get a glimpse of a freshly laid egg in a rock cavity.”
The condor chick’s parents are viewed as the most dominant pair in the national park and they also parented the first condor chick to fly from a nest there in 2016, according to the announcement.
The new condor egg has about two months before an expected hatching. Then the chick would be in the next for about six months.
