The 58th confirmed hatchling of the 2016 Cahow nesting season was discovered by Jeremy Madeiros in nest chamber #A1 on one of the original nesting islands.
The A1 nest was one of the first 5 nests discovered in 1951 by Bermudian naturalist Louis L. Mowbray, American Ornithologist Robert Cushman Murphy and 15 year old school boy David Wingate and has been under almost continuous use ever since.
This 58th chick is just one off of the record of 59 chicks confirmed in 2014. That record might still be broken once the team has had a chance to survey some of the inaccessible underground nests with remote cameras some time in the next few weeks.
Translocation Colony A on Nonsuch Island however does have a record 10 confirmed hatchlings this season. These ongoing Translocation efforts are all the more important due to the fact the original small nesting islands (including the one where A1 is located) have been progressively falling apart over the past few years.
