Fledged condor chick at Zion NP takes first (short) flight

It was a short flight, and the landing was "ungraceful," according to onlookers, but condor chick #1,000 has stretched its wings and figured out how to fly at Zion National Park.

The chick's flight, spotted on September 25 by two park visitors, marked the first time a wild-hatched chick successfully fledged within Zion National Park since recovery efforts began in the late 1990s, and likely was the first in Zion in more than 100 years, according to park staff.
