NEW CONDOR CHICKS BORN IN SAN DIEGO ZOO
The San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park celebrates the hatching of the first California condor of the season. The chick, which hatched Sunday, April 3, will be puppet-reared to eliminate any association between people and food. Keepers will feed and monitor the chick daily at the Wild Animal Park's condor breeding facility. At four months old the Park's animal care staff is expected to introduce the chick and future hatchlings into a new classroom facility where two mentor birds will teach the chicks how to act like condors. There are more than 100 condors living in the wild in California, Arizona and Baja, Mexico since the California Condor Recovery Program began to release condors back into the wild in 1992. A second chick hatched Wednesday at the Park. (UPI Photo/Ken Bohn..
