5:11 pm

Adult up and digging around the eggs; both eggs visible. There was a dark area on one of them, and I really couldn't tell if it was a piece of grass or a crack - my guess is grass, but it could be either. I didn't take any s'caps so I could focus on watching.

Edited - I think it's grass but wasn't clear.

Added - I'm out for a while.

8:02 Parent is quietly incubating. There is gentle side to side rocking from time to time.

8:22 Parent repositioned to face 11/12...up just enough to shift. Rocked carefully and began incubating again. No view of eggs.

Parent is really restless. Shifted position twice from 8:25 to 8:35. Could see a little of both eggs as she moved, but not a good view.

8:35 moved again to gently move eggs. Seems to be sitting a little higher up and not so tightly on the eggs?

Good morning!

8:35 am

She(?) just did a bit of egg rolling and tucking, and it looks as if there's still two eggs. One is definitely still intact, only had a glimpse of the other but didn't see any pips or cracks.

I think the first egg was seen on December 5th, so this is at least day 37 for it. I don't actually have detailed scientific proof, but it's my impression after watching a lot of cams for a number of years that when there are two eggs in a nest, the first one most often hatches on day 37 or day 38 - so today might be the day!

She seems to be rocking back and forth some, and changing positions frequently - also things that often happen near a hatch.

8:39 repositioned again. Spent a little time checking/listening? before settling back in.

Hi Judy B and Nancy I didn't see any crack or pip either. I think that it is bedding on the egg on the rt.

Dad had been calling and was getting quite restless. Bet he was glad to see mom arrive.
