The countdown is on as we await the return of our female Cahow which in 2017 returned on the 10th and in 2018 on the 12th of January, laying her single egg within minutes of arrival.

The male will usually arrive shortly after the egg is laid, taking on the first incubation shift of 2 to 3 weeks allowing her to go back out to sea and regain her strength. If all goes well, the entire incubation generally lasts around 60 days with the chick hatching in early March.
Our followers around the World spent over 15 million minutes watching our Cam over the past 2 nesting seasons and we have many new improvements and features in store for this year as we expand upon our partnership with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
