10:30 am
Mom changed directions to incubate but didn't bother rolling the egg.
Whatever that debris is she is still pecking at it even though it's not close to the bowl of the nest. I tried looking at it on full screen and whatever it is is not recognizable. My guess is that it's a piece of bark.

FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2011

Weather forecast today is calling for High of 11C and afternoon thundershowers.

7:43 AM
Dad arrived on the nest. For the longest time Mom didn't get up but when she did the two mated and Dad then flew off again.
There is still only one egg on the nest. I was hoping maybe today there would be a second one but the day has only just begun.

7:47 AM
Mom is again incubating the egg.

9:00 am
Dad arrived and Mom flew off.
Dad can't seem to get comfortable on the egg. He is up and down steady.

9:03 am
Mom returned much to Dad's relief and he immediately flew off.

9:30 am Approx.
Another switch. Dad now incubates the egg

10:02 am
Dad is off the egg and calling then settled in again.

I've noticed that this pair have been off and on the egg quite often today and there are periods of time that I wonder if it's being kept warm enough.

10:10 am
Mom arrived and Dad has now flown off.

Jazzel you obviously have better luck than I do when it comes time to catch the egg laying. I think Mom has conspiracy against me catching her in the act and she waits until I'm away from my computer giggle Maybe I'll be lucky enough to catch the third egg in a couple of days. fingers crossed
