Nest Check Reveals Female Cahow is Back in the Burrow
A Monday morning nest check by Senior Terrestrial Conservation Officer, Jeremy Madeiros, reveals that the female Bermuda Petrel has returned to the burrow! The well-fed cahow is assumed to have taken over incubation duties on Saturday, February 18 after two weeks away from the egg. Now it's the male's turn to replenish his energy stores by feasting on the squid and pelagic shrimp of the Atlantic.
