A Cahow chick is in the process of hatching on Nonsuch Island, say the Nonsuch Expeditions team. Their live CahowCam has recorded a “pip” (the initial hole that the chick makes in the egg) and the baby bird can clearly be heard peeping from inside. The hatching process can take anything from hours to days – to see it for yourself, click here and look for camera on nest #831. If there doesn’t seem to be much action, hold on a little longer -you should hear the chick call. The Nonsuch team are hoping for another record breaking year.
5 March – Newflash. The chick has hatched and the web cam just got even cuter 🙂
