Baby condors in danger

On February 11, I watched and filmed two condors mating in the Ventana Wilderness. In today's news, we learn that three condor chicks born in the wild are in serious danger, with one possibly already dead, from the fire which is raging in the area, only 3% contained.

Is there a connection? Gestation period for condors is 54 days, and we're told the condors are "about 2 1/2 months old." That puts their date of conception somewhere in the middle of February, right about when I filmed them. Not "proof," certainly, but there's a definite possibility!
