There was a nest exchange just now. Dad taking over. But before Mom got up they were both facing the cam direction. A good view of Dad's white spot on his top skull marking and Mom's just solid dark mark

Hope this helps you all in IDing who is who.

OK BET, now I see the difference. His dark spot has white on it.
Hopefully this will help and I won't confuse it -which I will.

Thank you, BET. We get it now. My mom and I can tell them apart. Now we just have to get them to look at the camera. Wink

Mom on the nest.
Has anyone figured out what that roundish object is ? Is it a lid from a disposable drink cup ? Puzzled

Dad arrives with a new stick and places it on the rim.

Mom flies off leaving him to tend the nest. I never could get a look at the eggs during the exchange.

When I first saw it I thought it looked like a stone. I cannot figure out what it is!

Christine, whatever it is is slowing being buried in the nesting.

9:16 am
I got busy doing other things this morning but I think there was a second switch since my report of Dad taking over earlier.
Dad, judging by his white mark, has made a landing with another stick and flew off almost immediately.

Morning All

Happy egg waiting day!Grin

I woke up early so got up and logged on and started the recorder and went right back to bed. I just reviewed the recording and Judy has covered everything of note. I did catch Dad's delivery of what I think really is a rock - Dad continues with his Organic Only nest material Roll eyes
