Condors with blue wing tags are older birds that hatched between 2003-2005. The blue signifies that they are "300" birds. For example, a blue tag with a 10 on it is actually condor 310.
317Hatched: 5/26/2003 at the San Diego Zoo
Released in Pinnacles: 2004
Previous Mates: VWS condor 318 (deceased 2012); VWS condor 171
Offspring: VWS condor 787 (deceased 2017)
Fun Fact: In 2010, laid the first condor egg seen in Pinnacles since 1898; unfortunately the nest failed. She was then given a foster egg from the zoo to raise, which was condor 550. However, 550 had to be evacuated from the nest due to lead poisoning and was later released from captivity. In 2011, 317 was given another foster egg. This chick, 595, somehow broke her wing while in the nest. She was taken to the LA Zoo, where she is now an ambassador condor known as Dolly. 317 also successfully raised a chick (787) with a female partner (171) in 2015.
