Thunderchief is the only male and most dominant member of the cohort. He is the largest of his release cohort by several pounds, takes food from all the other cohort members, and hogs the attention of visiting free-flying condors. Simply stated, Thunderchief is the thunderous chief of his cohort and is named after the great fighter planes of the Vietnam War. Like these incredible planes, Thunderchief will make history.
