A crested ibis chick has been found in a nest built in the wild on an island in the Sea of Japan, making it the first to be born to a truly wild pair in Japan in 40 years, the Environment Ministry said Friday.

The ministry confirmed the existence of the chick after seeing its beak while the parent birds were feeding it in the nest on Thursday afternoon on Sado Island, Niigata Prefecture. The previous day the adults had been seen incubating eggs in the nest.
