Electra, the most dominant female in her cohort, is named after Amelia Earhart's famous plane. This captive condor, like Amelia, is bold and adventurous. She stood up to the other condors in her cohort to get what she wanted to prepare for her amazing journey. Unlike Amelia, however, Electra achieved this by taking food from her follow condors to prepare for flight in the wild. Since her release, we have seen the gutsy Electra flying all around the Central Californian Coast. She has taken a particular liking to Pinnacles National Park, and can often be seen soaring with her devoted partner, the handsome Pinnacles male #700.
