News from our friends Foundation Bioandina: First Condor Chick on the atlantic coast

condor We received the happy news that after a hundred years absence from the area, after the release of young condors in the past few years, now recently a chick was born in the Paileman mountains in Argentina, the northern part of Patagonia. These mountains form a bridge between the Andean mountainrange and the atlantic ocean. The condors (carrioneaters like the Griffon vulture and the Bearded vulture) feed on the coasts of the oceans, those of the Andes on the pacific coast, this chick will fly with its parents who feed on the atlantic coast.
