Endangered Bermuda petrel couple caress each other

This video from Bermuda says about itself:

Tender Preening as Male Returns to the Burrow on the Bermuda Cahow Cam

The male petrel returned to the burrow for the first time tonight (January 15, 2017) and greeted the female after being away for possibly two months. The two will spend from a few hours to a day or two together in the burrow courting and reaffirming their bond before she leaves for about the next 30 days to forage and replenish her reserves.

The CahowCam is a collaboration between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Nonsuch Expeditions. You can watch the cam live here.
