Enter the nesting burrow of this Bermuda Petrel breeding pair live on the Cahow cam as they prepare for another breeding season on Nonsuch Island.

Bermuda Cahows Return To Nonsuch Island

After spending months foraging over the Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda Petrels (also known as "cahows") have returned to their breeding grounds on Nonsuch Island, Bermuda, to court, copulate, and spend time with one another in the nesting burrow. Watch cam.

The cam pair's return signals the onset of the breeding season and an opportunity to follow and learn about the breeding ecology of one of the most endangered seabirds in the entire world. Thanks to our partners at Nonsuch Expeditions, we also have access to expert commentary from cahow biologist Jeremy Madeiros during his weekly check-ups on the adults and chick (like this highlight from November 13).

Breeding pairs typically return to Nonsuch Island every year in early November to court and mate before venturing back out to sea for most of December. The cam will be offline during December for maintenance, but will be back online before the petrels arrive to lay in early January, when the female will return to the burrow and lay a single egg. Stay tuned for another year of discovery in Bermuda!
Anna's Hummingbird Shares Feeder With Acorn Woodpecker
Sharing is caring! One of our favorite moments from this year's West Texas hummingbird cam was when this Anna's Hummingbird and Acorn Woodpecker shared time at the Perky-Pet Grand Master feeder.

Hummer Cam Winds Down With Big Prizes

To celebrate another successful season of bedazzlement by the bejeweled buzzers of the West Texas hummingbird cam, we're asking you to share your favorite experiences watching hummingbirds on cam, in the wild, or in your own backyards! To top it all off, three Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone® Bird Feeders and two Celestron "Hummingbird" Micro Spotting Scopes (valued at $319.95 each!) will be given away to five randomly chosen participants who share their stories by midnight on November 26. Share your top hummingbird moment.

Ontario Feeders Ripe With Species Diversity

The feeders on the Ontario FeederWatch cam have been as busy as ever since the launch of the 2017–18 season. In the first week alone, cam visitors include plenty of Pine Grosbeaks and Evening Grosbeaks, a Ruffed Grouse, and a Red-breasted Nuthatch! There's only one way to tell what will be next. Watch cam.

In case you missed it: We've archived the Q&A on bird feeding with Project FeederWatch's Dr. Emma Greig and Chelsea Benson for those viewers who were unable to attend the live event.
