Jack Nisbet - Condors in the Greater Northwest

Jack Nisbet

Yakima Audubon Monthly Program - April 2021 - Jack Nisbet

Written, oral, and archaeological records describe a rich history of California condors in the Pacific Northwest, including many accounts from east of the Cascades. In this online presentation, author Jack Nisbet will revisit the research that he used for his book Visible Bones, then move forward in time to trace what has come to light since as part of the effort to reintroduce these birds into their original range.
