First Condor Nest in Pinnacles in 100 Years

SFgate.com is reporting that 2 California condors have built the first condor nest in the Pinnacles in more than 100 years. The nest with a single egg was found recently in a cave on top of a cliff known to rock climbers as Resurrection Wall, on the west side of the park. The egg is not expected to hatch for three months. The nesting area will be closed to the public until the chick takes flight sometime in October.

The Pinnacles National Monument, which is in the Gabilan Mountains about 30 miles south of Salinas, is home to the California Condor re-establishment program has been in place since 2003. The park currently manages 22 free-flying condors with a goal of eventually having 150 free-flying birds and 15 breeding pairs in both California and Arizona.
