About 12PM nest time-- I turned the cam on just in time to see Mom roll the eggs

They do that so quickly that she was down before I could get another s'cap

I was in a rush earlier, but got these s'caps of...SNOW!

I wasn't sure which parent this was. Kinda hard to tell by the skinny legs. Wink

Then when they settled down, I was the nuptial plumes, which indicates Dad...

Talk about a late spring snow! Looks like they got quite a bit. Nodding yes

A nice look at the 5 eggs
