Great News Christine. Lets hope all our forecasts keep changing for the better.



***Mom just flew off the nest and there's 2 eggs now sitting in that dark hole of a nest. I think she just wanted me to get a peek at them because she's right back & settled down on them again. I think the eggs have a good chance of hatching. The snow & cold came early after she started the process so I think at that early stage before development it will be ok unless the egg froze of course. I don't think that happened.

It's great friends to see the second egg. I am going to hope for warmer, not colder weather. I understanding JD that weather is unpredictable there this time of year. (Actually it is here too).
As said, snow is an insulator so hopefully both will hatch. It's kind of needless to speculate i guess as it is what it is. She is incredible (as he is).
Thanks for all the filling in.

Only time will tell what's going to happen with these eggs but miracles do happen. If these two hatch we maybe should call them Blizzard and Frosty.




I think the names are great! And if it warms and she lays another egg, we will have to call it Sunshine.

Good Morning All

Snowing again! Mom's on the nest or should I say in the snow bowl? So she did deliver egg #2 last night. What is the weather prediction for Monday night?

Judy - Christine - I like the names too. Blizzard Frosty Snowy Rainy or Sunny - Any more ideas anyone?

I have the recording going now. Need to take care of my zoo.

Good Morning, everyone. Yes, it's snowing again on poor Dad, he's looking around now for Mom perhaps. I saw his head pattern very clearly so don't think Mom has relieved him yet. Mom may need a longer break after last night.

Like Ernie, I think the eggs will be fine so far but I'm worried about Monday and Tuesday's predicted low temperatures. If it clears up here the temp. usually drops. We will just have to wait and see what transpires.

8:45 am Mom is back, Dad arose, shook off the snow, circled and mated with Mom on the edge of the nest bowl.
There was a bit of snow beside the two eggs within the nest bowl itself. Mom is brooding and looking around.

I forgot to thank you for this morning's weather and the first scap of the two eggs, Judy. Great to see them. Smile

Ernie,

I note you are still not finding the "Post Reply" option. The quickest place to find it is at the bottom of the page you are reading. It is located at the top and the bottom of every page.

Hope this image will help you
