1012 am
Dad flew in with some nest bedding; Belle got up and exited
the nest.

Dad took over incubating ... we got a partial view of the eggs
but Dad never rolled the eggs so not sure if there is any more
pips or cracks in the egg.

i Deb, worked last 2 days, again tomorrow, think our 2nd egg is hatching, mom I think working in bowl, listening and calling for relief. never saw chick 1, does not look good Cry we didn't see any feedings, and no one can see the baby. it was pouring rain the first day, don't know if it got wet or chilled. parent on nest watching very hard for other parent, maybe this is dad , wants a break Dunno feel so bad for them if they lost their chick, praying for 2nd egg. and wish it would warm up.
it is 633pm Monday

720pm mom returned and ate something at 12, dad took the fish at 11 and ate some and flew off leaving some fish. sadly baby passed they said on fb Cry I knew because we never saw a feeding, mom settled on egg, earlier dad acted like he heard peeping, was staring at egg deep in nest bowl. maybe hatch late tonight or tomorrow. cam was not working a lot today, thought we got a new one last year Help emo

I was wrong, it was dad that returned earlier and mom left the nest for a break, she just returned and ate a little, but saw something towards 3 and just flew off, 744pm. dad is up and e3ating more fish, ready to leave soon, we can see the egg, or part of it. pc froze, dad left I think and mom on the egg.749pm. parent, think mom, breathing hard, and tail moving, now grooming. now listening. cam went off, got it back

Evening Doreen & Friends

Doreen thanks so much for your reports and captures Thank You I tried to tune in while i was away working in the NT so i did know the first chick died.
Shortly after it hatched i noticed Mom was looking at it often and at one point she covered it up with bedding ... it was so very sad to see Cry

A few days before hatch ... Mom appeared to step on the eggs i am not sure if that was a factor or if that was totally unrelated. The baby was
strong enough to hatch so something took its life very rapidly after hatch ... perhaps a respiratory bug ... i know we will never know but we will always wonder.

Great news this afternoon ... Belle and Smitty welcomed their second sweet baby chick Egg hatch

Congrats to Belle and Smitty on the safe arrival of their second chick today was so happy to see it live ... i was travelling home and had a cell signal so i watched.


We only got glimpses of the new arrival late this afternoon but we do have visual confirmation of the hatch and we could hear the baby peeping when it was being checked by Mom.

No first feeding yet; it was raining this morning and after the new baby arrived then it got dark so Dad was not able to bring in a fish.

Hopefully this second chick is strong and healthy fingers crossed

I posted some pictures from my phone on BE 101 but its to difficult to post them here ...

Here is a video i did as Mom tucked her sweet baby in for the night you can hear the baby peeping so very sweet.

Morning Doreen & NCTC Friends wave

The switch from Belle to Dad occurred and we got
a peek at the new bobble ... he was doing his best
to sit up and look around but to no avail ... bobbing it
was so sweet.

9 am
First Feeding a Success; Belle had some fish hidden in the root cellar; she tested the chick first; the baby was interested so she retrieved the fish and fed the baby some fish. There was good beak contact made ... the baby was able to sit up and reach for the food ... great first feeding ... video coming ... now i have to get ready for work ... hope you will help us document and leave an observation with date and time if you are watching today.

A terrific day at the nest ... the new baby was sitting up nicely and reaching for Mom's beak much better today ... less bobbles Red Heart

Dad delivered fish and a grey squirrel ... so pantry had lots of food!

Some highlights ...
