When we realized that Wilbur and his brother were being released in the same cohort, we had to name them after another famous pair of siblings– Wilbur and Orville Wright, first in flight. This is the first time two brothers have been released in the same cohort in Big Sur. Wilbur is the goofier of the pair – when he catches a glimpse of himself in the two-way reflective mirror in the flight pen, he can't resist flying over to check himself out. Despite his goofy personality, Wilbur has been doing great in the wild. He now hangs out with #718, his buddy from their cohort and tends to fly between Big Sur and PNP, spending less time at San Simeon than in his early days.
