Have a good day, Judy and thanks again for being here every day but especially today!hug

9:04 am Dad finally flew out and like you I hope he is off to find a fat fish for Mom. I just fed the rather tame pair of mallards that nest in our neighbourhood and gave them a basin of water as they didn't take to the kiddie pool I provided last year. Green LOL And I'm off in a short while myself so I hope that others are watching.

9:10 am and Dad is in with a stick for the nest perimeter. He still hangs on Mom's coattails, imo, but I'm glad to see him so protective of her and the nest. love He just flared his wings.

How absolutely thrilling! Mom's got a head start -- last year first egg laid May 6th! Cloud 9
I am hoping and praying this cold front coming in starting this evening with rain will lighten up, but sadly it looks like a big one.....sigh....

THank you Judy for the great report on the first egg! No - I am sorry, but I do not have it recorded. I had problems all day yesterday with the stream freezing. I can not figure out why. My other streams don't freeze. But I got tired of having 30 - 60 minutes of the same image and shut it down.

Maybe the next one.

I am going to have to have some minor work done on my computer soon too.

I love the way Dad is incubating right now and Mom standing guard right next to him.
'til later

Bet

PS I have to go to town today, but I will leave the recorder on .

wave Michelle,

Yes, I feel the same as you about the weekend weather. But I'm sure all will be well here, although I'm thinking that Mom will not be happy if Dad broods her egg every time she gets up today. Mom usually cools the eggs enough that they hatch closer together than normal. Guess cooling won't be a problem after today!

9:32 am Dad on the eggs and Mom standing riverside, falling asleep on her feet. I wonder if she was up all night. Puzzled

9:35 am Dad rises off the eggs but immediately plunks down again. Up and aerating the nest and Mom is
quickly away.

Hi Bet. I wondered where you were yesterday.Smile I am off now. Byebye

Dad is really funny. He moves and wiggles and adjusts the egg every minute.
