Thanks Sandra for your post

11:27a Egg is still unattended... I am wondering if Mom saw Dad before she left and thought he was coming to the nest ... this is very unusual for her or Dad .. they are aways so attentive to their eggs!

11:34a
Egg alone ..light rain

I don't remember this happening before with this pair, Bev - but also can't remember if they had rain like this so early into the incubation cycle before. Dad should have taken a turn when he brought the fish, and I was a bit surprised to see that he didn't, but sometimes it does take Dads a bit longer to "remember" (or have something trigger the instinct) that they are supposed to incubate whenever they see an egg untended. And many pairs delay incubation of their first egg, so that instinct may be slower arriving in some - though this pair has generally incubated with very few breaks from the moment the first egg is laid.

I've read that having a warm egg get wet is a risk - and hope this is early enough in the cycle that it won't affect the hatching.

Thanks Judy for answering my question ... I am not sure if Dad even saw the egg ... that is why I did Videomarks ... I was taken back the he left ... he was always so attentive to the eggs and loved incubating them ... the first year we watched this nest Dad was incubating the eggs when both of them hatched .. I don't understand this behaviour at all.. and I don't remember this nest having rain like this either remember the year the egg didn't hatch .. It was Dad who mostly incubated it for 90+days
