996

Hatched: 5/25/2019 from a wild nest in Pinnacles
Sex: Male
Parents: Condor 589 and Ventana Wildlife Society condor 569
Fun Fact: The parents' second offspring, after condor 878 (deceased 2020) in 2017. However, blood tests revealed that although 589 raised 996 as his own, he was not the biological father! 569, the mother, apparantly had some alone time with condor 606 earlier in the year; this younger male turned out to be the real father of 996. Scandalous!
