New Bird Cam: White-tailed Tropicbird Cam Launches As Egg Is Close To Hatch! – April 19, 2019

The brand new White-tailed Tropicbird cam is live! Enter the nesting cavity of a White-tailed Tropicbird pair on Nonsuch Island, Bermuda as they prepare for their single egg to hatch in a matter of days!

Watch this new collaboration with our partners at Nonsuch Expeditions LIVE at AllAboutbirds.org/Tropicbirds.

White-tailed Tropicbirds lay one egg per nesting attempt, and both parents share incubation duties, which last around 40–42 days. The female laid the egg in this cavity around mid-March, meaning we should expect the chick to hatch within the next week to ten days. Be there when new life begins on a small island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean!

  1. On Nonsuch, about 70 artificial “Igloo” nests have been installed to replace natural cliff cavities which have been destroyed by hurricane erosion and cliff falls during hurricanes over the last 20 years. One of these nests, along the stairway leading up from the Nonsuch dock, has had a new White-tailed Tropicbird cam installed so that we can now follow the little-known “nest life” of this difficult to study species, which is generally more aggressive than the more laid-back Cahow.
