5:25 p.m. EST, Parent Switch.

At 5:20 pm Savannah called Derek. Derek showed up out front of the nest box at 5:23 pm and called out as he has been doing for a few days. He was on the nest and ready for his parental duties at 5:25 pm. Before checking their eggs and getting settled-in, Derek he did his normal placing of the crib rails. Savannah also checked the eggs before she left.

Good morning, Smile

7:26 a.m. EST, Parent switch.

Derek arrived on the nest at 7:26 am; he did not take the time to position crib rails this morning. There was very little opportunity to see the eggs (pic 2). They both spent more time with their ear to the ground by the eggs than I have yet seen; both seemed more concerned than usual about whatever activity around/overhead.

Still doing a lot of sky watching. Derek was patrolling the perimeter of the nest. Savannah decided to leave for a bit and Derek took over egg duty - giving us a good view of the eggs.

Derek rushes in to sound the alarm and take up guard duty. Then both leave the nest box and are out of view. Presumably threatening the interloper. One egg rolls out of the nest bowl. I still can only see two eggs.

Yeah Soph; me too, only two eggs that I can see. Looks like even Derek only sees 2 eggs!

5:09 p.m. EST, Switch.
Derek was on the nest quite a while before Savannah finally left. He had this to say about that.
