6:10 pm
I think this was a switch from Dad to Mom - the time is right, and she looks bigger - but I do wonder if she's a first-time mom who hasn't quite had all the instincts kick in yet. She's now standing in the middle of the nest, looking around.

She's still sitting in the same place, looking around and occasionally looking as if she might doze off.

I'm getting ready to sign out for the night. We do know that eggs can handle a lot of cold the first few days - and hopefully she'll be back on track soon. I'll try to peek in once more in a few minutes.


7:00 pm
Adult is in same location, doing some preening. I thought for a moment she was looking at the egg, but then she began to groom the wing on that side. As always, we only get to wait and see.

Good night, Donna and all.

Judy thank you so much for watching while I was away celebrating my grandson's 13th birthday. This pair did this last year with the first egg too. Everything turned out ok with hatching. But gosh when they do this it makes you wonder.

I also think it is the same pair as last year, but really hard to know.

7:58pm Mom is incubating the egg.

9:08am Parent returns

9:10am Parent, I think Mom,goes to the egg, settles, up and then stands by the egg.

9:13am Parent settles down, up again, pulls up grass and the egg is left up front of the parent.

9:24am Parent continues to incubate the egg.

9:40am Both are on the nest now.

9:46am Dad is off.

10:09am Parent is back and stands by the egg.

10:36am The parent, I think mom, stand near mid nest on the left side. Egg is probably ok as it is warm again today.

I will be glad for the second egg as I think they will incubate the eggs more and not be so restless.
