Guillemot Reveals Two Eggs

This Week on Explore (6/16)

DN4 has fledged! After an accidental (and suspenseful) fledge, we have received confirmation that DN4 is successfully flying and exploring the area! He has also returned to the nest, a nice surprise for explore! ECAD has a new litter! Please welcome Midori’s litter! Check out her puptatoes here! Two of Charlo Montana Osprey’s eggs have hatched!

An International Holiday for an Underappreciated Seabird

By Isabel Brofksy, Project Puffin Research Supervisor on Seal Island The past week on Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge has been an exciting one for our smallest alcid, the Black Guillemot (Cepphus grylle). On Wednesday, June 29th, a cool, rainy morning, the Audubon Guillemot Burrow cam’s first chick pushed its way out of its egg
