Baby Bermuda petrel born


This video from Bermuda says about itself:

First Look: Cahow Chick Hatches In The Nesting Burrow! – Mar 2, 2018

The Bermuda Petrel chick fully hatched on the morning of March 2! Here we get the first look at the peeping hatchling—still wet and fresh out of the egg—as the adult female tends to her new arrival.

Over the next few hours, the chick’s downy plumage will dry, and the young bird will begin to resemble a fluffy puffball. According to cahow expert Jeremy Madeiros, the on-cam chick is the 6th cahow chick to hatch on Nonsuch Island, Bermuda so far this breeding season!

The CahowCam is a collaboration between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Nonsuch Expeditions. You can watch the cam live at http://allaboutbirds.org/cahows and learn more about Nonsuch Island’s environs (including the cahow) at http://nonsuchisland.com.
