3 crested ibis chicks confirmed safe by ministry

The Environment Ministry has confirmed that the three newly hatched crested ibis chicks in Niigata Prefecture, are in good condition even after the recent approach of a predatory crow.

Earlier this month, the chicks became the nation’s first crested ibises to be born in the wild for 36 years. They are now estimated to be about 20 to 25 centimeters long and to weigh about 150 to 300 grams, the ministry said.

The ministry confirmed the condition of the chicks through a camcorder.
