Yellow-crowned Night-Heron Passes By Cahow Cam On Nonsuch Island, Bermuda – June 24, 2020

This Yellow-crowned Night-Heron lives up to its name while passing by the cahow burrow entrance in the early morning hours of June 24. Yellow-crowned Night-herons were introduced to Bermuda in the 1970s to help control a land crab population which had exploded following the extinction of the endemic Bermuda Night-Heron in the 1600s following human colonization.

Both the 2017-2018 cam burrow and the original 2013-2014 burrow are visible, as well as this above-ground view of Nonsuch Island (where the cams are based).

Bermuda Cahow Chick Fledges Overnight! | Nonsuch Expeditions | Cornell Lab – May 25, 2020

Fledge alert from Nonsuch Island, Bermuda! This weekend brought cause for celebration for everyone following the Bermuda Cahow cams this year. At 2:03 AM on May 25, the 87-day-old chick “Nemo” from the CahowCam1 burrow fledged!

Watch highlights of the chick in the hours leading up to liftoff. The chick starts off by testing its wings with some rapid flapping before it begins exploring the area outside of the nesting tunnel’s entrance. Stay until the end to see the young petrel make a confident flight towards open water. Now that the chick has fledged, it will spend the next 3-6 years at sea before returning to its breeding grounds in search of a mate.
