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!
