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.

Fun Fact: In 2010, laid the first condor egg seen in Pinnacles since 1898; unfortunately the nest failed. She has been given two foster eggs from zoos to raise over the years, but unfortunately both chicks had to be evacuated from the nest and taken back to the zoo. One was condor 550, who was evacuated from the nest due to lead poisoning and was later released from captivity. The other was condor 595, who is now an ambassador condor at the LA Zoo known as Dolly. She somehow broke her wing while in the nest and couldn't be released. 317 also successfully raised a foster chick (787) with a female partner (171) in 2015. Condor 1021 is her first blood-related offspring.
