Webcam gives glimpse of California condor nest at Safari Park

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego Zoo Global Monday launched a webcam that will give Internet visitors a glimpse into a California condor nest at the Safari Park.

The new camera view comes on the brink of mating season, so viewers might be able to see events previously witnessed only by animal handlers and biologists, like courtship, egg incubation, hatching, parents caring for the young and a chick's first flight.

The camera gives a birds-eye view of a nest in a tree within the Safari Park's condor breeding enclosure, which is off-limits to the public. Two of the big birds sat on a horizontal post during an examination of the camera this afternoon.

San Diego Zoo Global is the new name for the San Diego Zoological Society.
