Update: Jesse Grantham confirmed that the chick has died.

"While the area immediately around the area where the dead bird was found had not burned, twisted and broken off trees of fir and oak suggested tremendous winds raced up the canyon," he said. "That accompanied by heat and smoke may have been contributing factors in the bird's death. We won't know anything definite until all pathology work is completed."
