Rare Bermuda petrels’ egg hatching

This video says about itself:

Male’s First Visit While Egg Is Hatching—March 1, 2018 | Bermuda Cahow Cam

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

We’re excited to share a brand new live viewing experience featuring the critically endangered Bermuda Cahow, a kind of gadfly-petrel that nests nowhere in the world except rocky islets off the coast of Bermuda. In the early 1600s, this once-numerous seabird was thought to have gone extinct, driven out of existence by the invasive animals and habitat changes associated with the settlement of the island. In 1951, after nearly 300 years, a single bird was rediscovered, and since then the species has been part of a government-led conservation effort to revive the species.

This video is called Male’s Second Visit to the Burrow During Hatch, March 1, 2018 | Bermuda Cahow Cam.
