Adult had just come off the lake and turned the eggs. Couldn't really see if there were pips in the eggs or not.

A human hand gently set the egg back on the nest. Either it rolled out or he may be checking it for signs of hatching.
Sorry I missed the s'cap.

SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 2010

8:40 AM
Adult got up to reposition itself on the nest but there wasn't a very clear view of eggs or chicks if they have yet hatched. I did look as if at least one egg is still intact but couldn't see past the loons belly to get a look at anything else.
Hatching is due/overdue.

The eggs are 3 days past the expected hatch date.
