BiologyCourting and breeding between late October and mid June, the nocturnal Bermuda petrel courts at night whilst flying, screeching eerily. The female lays her eggs in either an artificial burrow or a natural crevice in January and chicks hatch in late February and early March. The hatchlings learn to fly quickly, but do not fledge until late May and early June (5). The Bermuda petrel eats small squid, shrimp and small fish (5).
