Condors with Pink Tags

On This Page Navigation

 
From 2017 to 2019, Pinnacles and Ventana Wildlife Society used tan colored tags to denote "800" birds. However, starting in 2019, we decided to change our coloring system to match up with the condors in Southern California, since more condors were starting to spread out and travel to the release site down there. This means that "800" condors will now have pink tags, "900" condors will now have tan tags, and "1000" condors will now have orange tags. We are now in the process of re-trapping all of those birds in order to give them their correct tag color. This means identifying which condor you saw may be a bit confusing until we are able to catch all of the birds, but this site will be updated as new colored tags are switched!
