Good afternoon Hays family, Judy and all.

Here's the video clip from the 2nd egg at Hays today. It looks like the egg was laid around 1:45 PM. The new egg is a brighter white color from the first egg:

Thanks so much, Bev! I've been trying to get a good s'cap of the eggs and haven't had much luck - and one of the adults just brought in a huge bundle of straw or something - which did not improve the view of the eggs!

I saw on chat about the difference in color, and normally I don't think too much about that because the eggs can pick up color from stuff in the nest - but I'm remembering last year, when none of the eggs hatched. After the second egg collapsed last year, host PixController reported that they received a very interesting message from one of their Facebook fans Susan Shearer. This was her message: "Wanted to give you some info I got from the Raptor Education Center that may be the reason the eggs failed...On Feb. 24th mom stood up and steam came off the nest ..after that the color of the eggs changed ...out of concern I messaged the Raptor center sent them pics of the eggs before the incident and after ..also sent them video of the steam coming off..they had concerns that there was too much moisture and that could cause bacteria that would harm the eggs being they were just a few days old...This makes sense to me."

I'd never heard of that - and I have no idea if there's been steam seen this year - but it is something to watch.

And hopefully it's just something the egg picked up from the nesting material. fingers crossed

I think I saw the other one to the right as she moved over for her snack, Bev - but very hard to see as it's almost as dark as the fluff in the nest.
