The egg and the chipmunk



I love the back view of the new O'lets. The stripe up their backs always brings chipmunks to my mind. I caught this view as Mom was arranging the egg. Maybe wishful thinking but my eyes tell me their is some interesting lines on this egg.



BET, I've been trying to get time to reply to this post, "chipmunks" TitterClapping How cool is that Rolling on floor laughing

Dad flew in bringing a good size fish which Mom promptly took

Dad moved to the back of the nest - probably hoping for the left overs. Mom fed with her back to the camera, hiding the wee ones from view. Dad gave up and left.

After feeding, Mom moved to the far side with the left overs. Have a view of the teeny tiny O'lets

Mom flew off for a few moments. Returned and covered the 'lets and the remaining egg - although she wasn't too careful with the egg.

Mom's still ripping off food but stands there as if waiting for the chicks to come to her. She seems very new at this task. Little chicks are waiting but not getting much.

7:04 am
Mom leaves her fish and goes over to take Dad's.

Mom's gives up on the feeding and moves to the side of the nest and flies off leaving Dad standing on the side of the nest.
The chicks didn't get much to eat this morning and Dad isn't making any move to feed them or brood them.

Dad arrived. He must have decided that Mom wasn't gong to to anything with the fish so he grabbed it and flew off with it.

9:11 am
Mom was up flapping her wings -- not sure if she was just stretching or warning something away.

9:13 am
Mom's picking at something in the bowl of the nest but she has her back to the camera. Can't see if she's moving eggs or tucking in the chicks.
Finally she settles to brood.


9:22 am
Dad arrived. Both he and Mom are doing a few nestorations.

9:23 am
Mom feeds the chicks while Dad does the interior decorations.
I keep wanting to tell Mom to take a couple of steps closer so that the little one gets some food. He's missing out. Sad

9:26 am
Finally Mom reaches in far enough to feed the second O. Smile
Dad is standing guard on the side of the nest.

Out out for an hour

Roll eyes Green LOL Chip and Dale - I like it. love So Judy R - let it be When they get to be gangly teens, it will remind me how cute they are at hatching.

I logged on to Mom brooding, so no image to post. I'll be gone for part of the day today and tomorrow, so won't be able to keep a close watch, but I do not believe the remaining egg will ever hatch. I feel it is the first one and suffered from the plastic bag covering it episode or

Brian Keating of Calgary Zoo Outreach:

If this is a new female which I think it is, even despite the plastic bag frustration, the first clutch of their first years nesting attempt often has some infertile eggs (we have seen as few as one out of three eggs hatch in a given clutch on years when we were sure it was a new female).

First -time parents certainly have their difficulties.

Dad fed Chip and Dale while Mom groomed (Reverted to the Trophy Wife Green LOL She must know her best features are her wings and feathers as that is what she displayed to the cam Roll eyes}

After the feeding, Mom moved around to the side. Dad left and Mom took up brooding
