A power outage has taken the cam’s encoder offline for the time being. We’ll aim to be back online as soon as power is restored. Thank for your patience!

Does Jeremy have a fan club? The videos of him handling and talking about the birds are so very stress-reducing

He/she should have flown. If any fail to, they are helped by local wildlife officials and rehabbed and released back into the wild.

They fledge from the cliff over the sea and some end up in the water and then take to the air. If they fail to fly after fledging they are picked up and brought into the Bermuda Aquarium for rehab and release.

The White-tailed Tropicbird has fledged! It was exploring the burrow this morning and occasionally peering outside. It continued to move around the burrow and flap its wings before finally taking the plunge into the world outside. Best wishes young one!
