Nest #8, 2019-20

Banded Bird #2363 - Male

This banded male is 20 years old and was here at this same nesting spot last year with a different female. They raised 2 chicks. They have built a nest in the Cliffs breeding group and are surrounded by rocks and other birds for protection against the Skua. This year they are named Rift and Wolfi by the students in Peggi Knight's classroom at Prince Williams School, Manassas, VA. The chicks are named by the students in Reinhard Marx's class at the Staedische Realschule Sundern, in Sundern Germany. They are Manu and Mohamed.
