This photo, taken in January 2015, shows the first South Georgia Pipit nest discovered in an area cleared of rodents by the Habitat Restoration Project. More pipit sightings have been made since
The South Georgia Pipit cannot breed when rats are present. The discovery of pipit chicks is confirmation that birds are quickly responding to the absence of rats.
