Last Parental Visit Before Fledge on Cahow Cam – May 28, 2018

Watch highlights of the last parental visit for “Sunny” the cahow chick before he left the nesting burrow on May 28, seemingly for the last time.

This final reunion was complete with back-and-forth vocalizations, multiple feedings, and a long preening session between parent and chick.

The CahowCam is a collaboration between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Nonsuch Expeditions.

You can watch the cam live at and learn more about Nonsuch Island’s environs (including the cahow) at

Cahow Chick‘s Last Visit To Nest Burrow Before Fledging From Nonsuch Island! – May 28, 2018

After spending much of the day wandering back and forth through the nesting tunnel, “Sunny” the cahow chick left the nesting burrow at around 10:00 P.M. on May 28 and likely has fledged from Nonsuch Island, Bermuda!

Check out these highlights from Sunny’s last visit after 87 days in the nest burrow. The young Bermuda Petrel will spend the next 3 to 6 years learning to forage over the Atlantic Ocean. Once matured, he’ll return to the breeding islands on Bermuda, mate, and attempt to raise his own chicks in a nesting burrow. Good luck out there, Sunny!
