5:04pm
Mom arrives at 4, not sure if she came in with a stick or bumped one on arrival.
Mom picks up one of the fish and begins eating, unable to see but can tell by the motion.

5:05pm
Dad gets up, flies off.
Mom leaves the fish (head is gone) and moves into the bowl.
a pip was visible before it was covered with feathers and twigs.

5:12pm
Mom is brooding, laying low of the bowl.
Looks like the wind is picking up.

Hi Kaylea, so nice you are here and with the kids too!!! Your father owns the property? What a sensational nest this is - many thanks to him for sure! Clapping

Hope baseball was fun! Smile

ha ha Terry ....... I noted that in my post as well.
Not sure if Dad intentionally covered the eggs, or if it just happened :dunno:

5:16pm
Peaceful, for the moment.

5:18pm
Mom is absolutley frantic.....she is calling and even goes so far as to mantle over the eggs...but...she remains firmly planted on them.
She is sounding almost hoarse....she is screaming.

5:21pm
Mom is settled once again and has shifted positions to face 7 now.
Calling again and turning her head, head is up now as she continues to scream..
