I so agree, Judy.

8:50 am
Dad left and the nest was empty for a minute or so.
I think it may be Mom who arrived and is now incubating, but I'm not sure.

How sad this is. I watched a video by David after logging in last night. He was talking about this nest. He said, and I am not absolutely sure, that in 2009 this pair stayed on this nest incubating for over 60 days. What devotion they have and how sad it is they cannot seem to produce babies. We can only pray for them to have a better year next year. My heart goes out to them.

Cockatiel, I just received your sending to the forum in my email addie. We shared a lot last season. Next one has to be better. I will be here like in 2009 until they leave the nest. Devotion deserves devotion. Smile



You bet stim. Painful as it is.....I'll be here. Nodding yes

I am hoping they leave soon, it is so heartbreaking to watch their dedication when it is for nothing. I will be here until they are gone. I just hope and pray that they will return to this nest next year.

Just glanced over at my monitor a few minutes ago and noticed the nest was empty. An eagle did a quick in-and-out a minute or so later (not sure who), then Dad arrived and nestled in to incubate.

I don't think the eggs were alone for long.

From the old forum:

2009 Summary of Events

  • Eggs Laid: on or before February 23 (35 days from Feb 23 is March 30)
  • Cam On: March 8
  • Sad News: the eggs didn't hatch; the parents continued incubating steadily until mid-April (a good 2 weeks after the anticipated hatch dates), then began to leave the nest for longer and longer periods of time; the eggs were eventually eaten by crows near the end of April, and it appeared that one might have had an embryo - suggesting at least one egg might have been viable but succumbed to the cold weather this spring
  • Cam Off: May 2



This year the eggs were laid March 10 and 14; 35 days from March 14 is April 18

As sad as this nest is this year, I have some more sad news. The female Eagle at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens was killed this morning. The Male has not been back to the nest. The babies ate early this morning, but not since. Nothing has been decided what to do about the three eaglets.

:hello:

3:10 Just logged to find Sitting eagle in the nest. Looks like Dad's neck. Grin

3:15 Up from the nest and flies away at 3. Shadows looked like a good pip on each egg but then they moved with the wind blowing the leaves in the tree. Sad I know, wishful thinking now. :dry:

3:16 Looks like Ma in, right onto the eggs.

3:28 Saw a flash of movement and parent off the nest towards 3.

3:33 Still no parent. Looked like the shadow of a big bird fly over close to the nest. And again, left to right. Not sure if there's food there but the eggs would attract a predator. I had sound off so don't know if trilling went on but still no parent at 3:35. Eggs are now in the sun rather than shaded.

3:36 Parent has landed, standing at 11 looking around.

3:37 onto the eggs facing 4. Ma again?
