Welcome, Andean Condor Chick!

The National Aviary welcomes a new female Andean Condor to our flock!

This chick’s hatching is an important step for the declining South American species. This adorable little one is cozy in her Condor Court nest cave with Lianni, her very attentive mother. As the chick grows you may catch a glimpse of this sweet new arrival, or even hear her, on your next National Aviary visit.

There are many ways you can support this exciting new addition, and the National Aviary’s work to save birds and protect their habitats:
