Good night Bev, great scaps again today, My goodness that was a BIG beakful of fluff looks like she could barely reach the nest Wooh
I agree that tiny spot does look like a brood patch.... never thought I would get so excited over a bald spotlove I've got my fingers crossed for tomorrow morning for our first eggie fingers crossed. Finally Clapping the scap of the departure in reverse, our girl is sure full of surprises.
Sweet dreams Phoebe, Bev and all those who visit here and hummer hugs hug

Dark right now at the nest.

For our Information. BROOD PATCH .

Source: HERE

A brood patch is a patch of featherless skin that is visible on the underside of birds during the nesting season. This patch of skin is well supplied with blood vessels at the surface making it possible for the birds to transfer heat to their eggs when incubating..
