Condors that hatch in captivity are always given a wing tag before they are released. Biologists try to tag most wild chicks in the nest before they can fly, but some nests are too inaccessible. This means that some young condors are in the wild with no wing tags until biologists are able to trap them, which can be over a year after they leave the nest.
