Rare crested ibis hatches in Japan

Japanese wildlife researchers say a crested ibis chick hatched in the wild is the first of the endangered birds born outside captivity in 36 years. The nestling hatched from an egg produced by a pair of the endangered birds on Sado Island in Niigata prefecture, the Environment Ministry said Sunday.

Its parents, a 3-year-old male and 2-year-old female, were raised at an ibis conservation center on the island and released into the wild in March 2011.

They were found to have built a nest on March 16 of this year, Jiji Press reported, and the chick’s birth was recorded by a remote camera placed near the nest.
