Dad was incubating the egg when Mom returned with something

She gently shoved Dad off the egg and began to adjust it to her liking. Dad hopped over her to the other side and then they both began arranging a bit of moss around the egg. Each undoing the others arrangement

Mom lifted her head and moved her aim a bit to the side and Dad took the opportunity to get the last word - so to speak. He adjusted the moss and then took off. Green LOL

Mom settled down to brood.

I was watching a feeding at Delta but I did notice that Mom and Dad made a switch a few minutes ago.
Dad was left to incubate the egg but after a few minutes of that he decided to fly off.
The egg is now alone on the nest.

One adult back. I haven't seen the breast feathers to identify which one yet.

Now both on the nest but neither one laying on the egg.

Dad brought Mom a fish which she flew off with. He had brought one earlier but left with it when she didn't claim it. This may be the same fish.

SuperMom has been in the beautiful nest a fair bit today and has been rearranging material around her. Do you think she is ready to have another egg? We have taken to calling the dad Zeus, for the zoo. We are finding it easier to give him a name so we can keep the nests apart.

Hi All!

The name Zeus for this Dad is fantastic......yeah, I love it. Other than Supermom does she have any other name? Another mythological name? How about Selene (Moon Goddess married to Zeus).
Just a thought......and maybe Supermom is just perfect.
