This male, banded #1050, has raised chicks the last four years in our study. He has made a strong nest near the same spot as before and we belive he has the same mate. The first egg was laid Nov 9, the second on Nov 12. He is 14 years old, hatched in 2001 and returned to Cape Royds in 2003 as a 2 year old. You can compare how this pair raised chicks in past three seasons by clicking HERE. HERE and HERE
This pair has been named Izzy and Max by the students in Susan Withnell's class at Linton Springs ES, Sykesville, MD.
