Spirit (501) was another wild-raised chick, thanks to her foster parents, Whale Watcher (194) and Traveler (171). Since Spirit (501)'s first appearance at our feeding areas, it was clear she was not afraid of anything. Whether it was being harassed by older condors for feeding at the wrong time or strolling into our trap-up pen, she showed no fear. However, being overly intrepid sometimes caused problems for this plucky condor. For example, one of her wings ended up with a hole after older condors had to roughly remind her of her place in the feeding hierarchy. Spirit (501) was also occasionally seen sitting on the guard rails along Highway 1.
