Meet the #CBCgull family nesting on the roof of our broadcasting centre in downtown Vancouver. Earlier this month three chicks hatched live on our webcam.

We apologize for the temporary interruption in service, but the webcam is up and running once again with a new view to capture the chick in action. You'll have to look closely though because they are well camouflaged. 

You can also help name the chicks by tweeting us your suggestions @cbcnewsbc using hashtag #CBCgull. Check out some of the names submitted already in our Twitter Storify below.
