Girl Power! Two female California Condors successfully raise chick together

“Two female California Condors successfully raised a chick. The ladies teamed up after the suspected male mate of one of the females died after nesting began. Ventana Wildlife Society monitored sondor females 317 and 171 raising the chick in an extremely remote nest cave in the Ventana Wilderness, in Big Sur, CA. They produced this time-lapse video of the chick hatching in the nest. [The] video is the first time-lapse footage ever taken of a condor chick hatching in the wild.”
