Tich’, meaning “condor” in the Antoniano dialect, was selected for male condor 995 by the local Salinan tribe. Tich' (995) is a rather peaceful bird who doesn’t get involved in the day-to-day ruckus inside the release pen. Tich’ has never been aggressive to another bird and will happily step away from any intense situation. This has proven to be a successful strategy as the most dominant males don't seem to harass Tich’ as much as they do other birds, allowing him to feed under less stress.
Pronounced: Teech (with the “h” sound a little in the throat)
