7/13 ⭐ Happy One Week Fledged! To think the Cam was down all morning and came back on less than an hour prior to your "departure!" Can't help but wonder what you're seeing, you've seen and how well you're eating `til your heart's content lil' one! Safe seas! :o) 🤍

7/13 Good morning fellow Longtail followers! Quick reminder- Re: Cam offline Let's keep in mind the reasons for being here was/is to watch, enjoy & hopefully learn of the rearing/fledging of the Bermuda Longtail (White-tailed Tropicbird). Hope that was accomplished!

14:00 - 07/12 We saw the chick get fed quite often this season, but if you can be just a tad patient... It looks like the parent takes the opportunity to head out as the lil' one falls into a food coma.. Zzzzz 🤍 06/12/20

Kerry, This post/pic is from the Nonsuch FB page: You *may* get a quicker reply asking them directly there considering how busy Jeremy is or even on their Twitter feed "@"Nonsuch_Bermuda :o)

1600 - 7/11 The All About Birds link's showing highlights being the Cam's down for maintenance/upgrading. There were approx. 12 videos this past season so yes, it does revert to 2019 & yes it does inexplicably go backwards *starting* w/fledge on 07/06/20. So. 06/11/20 :o)

13:00 - 07/11 Hey there Kerry, No word on a name for him.... yet! Not sure if/when we'll get one! Would be ecstatic if he was named "Aura"... Gender neutral and fitting. Just an opinion. 🤍 So, probably just eliminated that option! ;o)

There's nothing funny about Tropical storms, but can't help but see some "irony" in the latest one, "Fay." Makes ya' think of Fay Wray type yells our lil' star expressed when removed for a check-up! Could be a sign. Him being "Like A Boss!" & scaring a storm towards land! 🤍

⭐️ Here we have the full length "Wrap-Up" VIA Nonsuch Expeditions w/Jeremy & JP (07/06). Can't thank them enough for their time, dedication & devotion to all under their care & watchful eyes. That they manage to make time for us as well is priceless!

As a follow up to the adult seen in the crevice after the chick fledged on 7/6, the first guess, as Jeremy had indicated, was confirmed by the band check he he did remove it for, to be "Mom!" (# 1506) - Thanks!

09:42 - 07/08 ⭐️ Cam is back, AND an adult was checking out the real estate. There's no way to confirm *strictly* VIA Cam view if this is a parent of the chick OR a new young Longtail looking for a vacancy..
