Banded Bird #72291 – Male
This banded male has been in our study before. The pair has been named Mumble and Bobala by the students at Saint Columban School in Garden Grove, CA. Their teacher is Genny Kahlweiss. Mumble is 10 years old and was first seen at Cape Royds in 2016. He was successful in raising chicks last year. He has a very secure nest surrounded by rocks which will help keep the Skuas away.
Eggs spotted: Nov 14, 2022
Dec. 30, 2022. I have given up hope this egg will hatch. Many reasons, not sure what happened. It will be interesting to see how long the parents will continue to stay on the nest. I will follow them everyday.
