Either that or maybe Pippa's auditioning for a role in a forthcoming re-make of "Titanic"?

Great post BEVS, thanks, I seem to be missing a lot of the action recently.

Yes. Plenty of those now. The chick fluff is on the end of the new feathers and breaks off in time.

& Mum is in again. Carrying on like this perhaps there is a chance of both parents being in at the same time for changeover. One can see Mum take off following feeding. Vid from LadyHawk.

NAME THE CHICK

So very cool if someone on here and from overseas won this & got to name her. Each submission is considered by the Otago Peninsula Trust and Iwi. It has to fit with the feel of the species & cultural area. Check out previous names to get the drift. Iwi will favour the indigenous names most likely however those are all over the world so there is much to draw on.

You may have guessed it, the Royal Cam chick needs a name!

Entries are now open for our annual Royal Cam name the chick competition with a refreshed look for this 2020 season. This year's competition is open to everyone, so if you're a Royal Cam fan and not in NZ you can still submit your name!

Submitting your name puts you in the draw to win some awesome prizes this year, Including an A3 professional framed photo of this year's chick, a one-on-one virtual tour with a DOC ranger showing you around the headland, the nest and The Royal Albatross Centre. Also up for grabs is other amazing The Royal Albatross Centre and DOC merchandise prizes!

Entries close on Sunday 2 August so get in quick and start submitting your names!

Is he still limping? I can't tell if he is or if that's just the way they walk.

Don't know any Maori, so I tried to sneak a Cree name in under the radar.

I dunno . It doesn't close to submissions for another 8 hours. Thereafter a team of folk from the Peninsula Trust, DoC and local Iwi will consider which 5 make it to the top of the pile. From there I think we all get to vote this year.

Thanks for all of the name submissions for the Royalcam chick. We received 2527 submissions, this is a record for any Royalcam chick.
Tune in for voting on the 26 August at 5pm.

A good bit of video of webcam chick investigating the webcam for the first time. She is starting to jump a little when she is exercising her wings. Soon will come the hovers.

She's looking good there. A lot of downy feathers are gone.
