Bermuda Petrel Returns To Burrow And Lays An Egg!

The Bermuda Cahows are back! In the early morning hours of January 12, the female petrel returned to the nesting burrow on Bermuda's Nonsuch Island for the first time since November and laid a single egg, which will be the nesting pair's central focus for the next five months! Watch highlights of the female's arrival as she makes final touches on the nest, lays her egg, and settles in for a long incubation bout. Thanks to our cam partners at Nonsuch Expeditions for working with us to provide this intimate look into the nesting cycle of one of the world's rarest seabirds!

Bermuda Cahow Takes A Break From Incubation

Watch the female Bermuda Petrel (aka "cahow") take a short incubation break, revealing her recently laid egg in the pair's bare scrape of a nest on Nonsuch Island, Bermuda.

Assuming all goes well, the incubation period can last anywhere between 51 and 55 days before a downy young seabird emerges from the shell.
