A hatchling leaves its nest. Following the  hatchlings emergence from their nest, Rookery Bay staff or interns excavate and count the empty shells, making note of any damaged eggs, or other issues.  On occasion, some hatchlings that did not emerge with the rest of the clutch are discovered and later released.
