First Oregon Zoo condor released to wild is also sitting on an egg

California condors are laying the groundwork for species recovery one egg at a time.

The first three eggs of the 2013 breeding season arrived at the Oregon Zoo's Jonsson Center for Wildlife Conservation over the past week. Malibu laid the first egg Feb. 14, Ojai laid the second yesterday afternoon, and Squapuni laid the third this morning.

"Each new egg is critical to the California condor's comeback," said Kelli Walker, the zoo's lead condor keeper.

The birds and their mates — Maluk, Atishwin and condor No. 189, respectively — will sit on the eggs for up to two weeks before keepers remove them to check whether they are fertile.
