Condor #729 is fortunate to follow in the footsteps of his foster brother #665. He was hatched in the same nest tree; a giant redwood with a burned out cavity high up in the braches. He showed up to our field station mid-January 2015 after thoroughly exploring his natal canyon for three months after fledging. Ninja acquired his name after the first time he was trapped to replace a broken transmitter. He evaded biologists as they tried to net him; biting, kicking, and bouncing around the pen with power and incredible agility.
