Two minutes after my last screen capture the nest was glowing in bright sunshine.

Both adults on the nest.
Dad stood on the nest a good 10 minutes before finally flying off.

Dad arrives home again. He's beak to beak with Mom before doing a few renovations to the nest.

Mid Afternoon

I have watched off and on today - grocery shopping interfered! Several nest exchanges have occurred. No visitors so far today. Nothing exciting to post. The 5 week wait until hatching seems like an eternity at this time. I spoke too soon, Mom is defending the nest right now although nothing in the cams view. OOPS she flew off leaving the eggs - Now she's back. Mission accomplished.

The return to nest

Mom is in the exact same position as she was earlier. She's been looking all around the area off the nest.
Dad has not made an appearance at all yet this morning to take his usual turn on the eggs.

Mom does a bit of housekeeping and preening without getting off the eggs.

Still no sign of Dad. Mom is looking very concerned --- looking in all directions and calling.
Something overhead grabbed her attention but only for a moment.

Out I'm out. Hope Dad arrives sometime soon.

Mom is on the nest. Since I just logged on about 30 minutes ago, I don't know if Dad has taken the duty yet this am. Mom was restless. (With that white feather askew, it makes determining it is her easy) She seemed uncomfortable on the eggs. Stood up and was moving them a bit when I realized there was a string like thing across the eggs she was trying to move out of the way Not sure what it was, as she was able to break a piece off. She finally was successful and moved it to the far edge of the nest. Occasionally she would look up in the direction of the camera. The top of the cam housing has been Dad's favorite perch over the years and I suspicion he was there while she was moving the offending object. Also, down on the river, one of the Canada's that are in residence there decided to take a swim
