Condors with Older Tags

On This Page Navigation

From 2003-2017, Pinnacles only used black or white wing tags for condors. Biologists would put a series of dots or lines underneath of the number to help identify individual birds. Eventually, it made more sense to switch to a color-coded numbering system. Since 2017, every Pinnacles condor has been retrapped and given a new colored tag- except for two of our most stealthy and secretive birds.
