Pixchi (pronounced PEE-chee) was chosen for #966, named by the local Esselen tribe in honor of the sacred Pico Blanco Mountain in Big Sur, California. We thought that her “White Peak” name was fitting because her favorite spot is the white weighing scale, which is the highest roosting spot in the release pen. She is one of the calmer birds of her group, yet fierce enough to stand up for herself when others try to intimidate her as she feeds. She has certainly made her presence known and it seems that no other bird will challenge her throne (aka white scale) anytime soon!
