Belle (878) was just the second condor to fledge from a nest in Pinnacles National Park in the last hundred years. Her parents, Pinnacles male Condor (589) and VWS condor (569), raised her in a cozy rock cavity in the park in the Spring of 2017. She took her first flights at the end of October 2017. She had been exploring the spires and peaks of Pinnacles National Park, and spent some time on the coast. She was found deceased near Pinnacles National Park, cause of death is unknown at this time.
