UPDATE: January 19th 6am: The female Cahow remained in the nest longer then expected and did not depart until just before sunrise. The pair spent the 2 days in the nest together taking turns incubating the egg.
UPDATE: January 17th 7am: The male Cahow has just returned during the last minutes of darkness and is expected to take over incubating the egg from the female who will go back out to sea. As of noon on the 17th they are both still in the nest where she should remain until dark this evening. Watch their never before seen interactions LIVE here:
January 16th 2016 6:15am. The Cahow from burrow #831 on Nonsuch Island in Bermuda, from which the CahowCam has been broadcasting LIVE for the past 3 nesting seasons, revealed her new egg live on camera after having returned to the nest under stormy conditions the night before at 8:55pm. LiveStream and replays can be seen here.
The female Band# E0197, was translocated to Nonsuch Island Colony A by Senior Conservation Officer Jeremy Madeiros from her nest on Green Rock in 2006. After first returning in 2009, she started nesting in Burrow #831 in 2010 with her mate Band# E0212 who was translocated from Horn Rock also in 2006.
The first 4 seasons they produced infertile eggs, however starting in 2014 they have successfully reared their chick each year seen LIVE via the CahowCam camera, producing "Lightning" in 2014 and "Rainbow" in 2015.
