A Cahow chick emerged from its egg live on camera last night [March 2] as part of the Nonsuch Expeditions CahowCam project.
The Nonsuch Island website said, “Hello World! At approximately 9.45 pm Bermuda time, two hours after the male took over incubation duties, and approximately 40 minutes after the top of the shell broke off, our star chick is completely free from the egg and has officially hatched! Less than an hour later the parent spent a few minutes outside revealing the chick.”
