Good news, carolyn! I have a windows 8 laptop that I'm using for work - and it is quite different from windows 7!

One thing I noticed a couple of times today, but wasn't able to record was Savannah feeding the little one, and Derek showing up, and noticing that the little one was uncovered, and seeing an opportunity to brood his new chick, happily moved in and started brooding, generally while Savannah was reaching out to give the little one another bite! I do suspect that words like "happily" are humanizing - but he has such a jaunty tilt to his head and bounce in his step as he approaches the nest that it's hard to avoid a wee bit of humanizing. love

JudyB after watching Derek for a few years now I have come to know that he is a bit wacky and a lot endearing---and boy does he love his babies!! He will get near them and take care of them whenever bossy Savannah will let him! Wub

I found this short video from the CRC tonight. It was from before the hatch----

ETA--I chuckled out loud at the pictures of Derek and the stick! Green LOL

9:40 a.m.
Savannah is up and calling, but she's standing over the bobble. No visual yet. Looks like cam operator is playing with the focus. Oh - there's the bobble and we still have an egg. My how the little one is growing already!!!

Egg rolling showed no signs of a pip as Savannah settles back in.

Good morning, Mary, carolyn, Lonette, mia and friends!

Little one is three days old today - they do grow fast!

And today is day 39 for egg #2, and day 35 for egg #3. We never know for sure, but my guess is that the remaining egg is #3, and that if all goes well, the hatch will occur later today or tomorrow. We do also need to remember that the injuries that make Derek and Savannah non-releasable are likely to pose some challenges to the production of fertile eggs - though they have been doing a great job of overcoming those challenges! Grin

I haven't been watching that much, but don't see as much fidgeting as we noticed while the first egg was hatching - but I also don't know if having a wiggly chick down there makes it harder for them to pay attention to tiny peeps from an egg. love

Still an egg, with no pips that I could see - and still an adorable little chick. love
