Orville, who was released with his brother Wilbur, is the most dominant of the current pre-release cohort. We named him and his brother after another pair of siblings who mastered the art of flight – the Wright brothers. This is the first time two brothers have been released in the same cohort in Big Sur. He is often seen strutting and bossing around his peers. He was nicknamed "Moose" by the crew due to his massive size and regal stature. We have high hopes for this bird, we see him rising to the top of the wild hierarchy quickly.
