Condor #631 was released in the spring of 2014 and the crew named him "Zephyr," which means, "a west, or a light wind." He was given this name because the first flights he took after he was released were short, meandering flights that took him away from the release slope for a couple weeks. After taking it all in for 19 days (and making VWS biologists a little nervous in the process) Zephyr finally made it back to the release site to feed and socialize. Phew! He is now an up and coming dominant member of the flock and we hope that he will find a partner and start nesting soon.
