Abstract

The Dovekie (Alle alle) is a small colonial High Arctic-breeding seabird that lays a single egg clutch. Occasionally, two eggs have been observed in Dovekie nests although incubation of both eggs has not previously been documented. Here, the incubation of a two-egg clutch by both members of a pair over an extended period is described and the origin of the eggs plus value of the observation discussed.
