Thanks for the recap, Bev!

I wasn't watching when the first fish arrived, but with the second, Mom was up and mantling it, and making the sort of calls I associate as "get away from my food" - and I'm probably humanizing, but it felt to me as if Dad was torn between going to the egg to incubate (which would mean moving closer to Mom), or backing off so she could eat - and after looking for a few moments, chose to leave.

I think if Mom had grabbed the fish and left, he would have taken over incubating the egg.


1:29 pm
Dad just arrived, I think with some sort of food. Mom is on the egg, yelling at him. He's moving closer and looking under her.

He's moving around the nest and doing some minor nestoration - she continues to yell at him.


1:32 pm
Mom gets up - Dad immediately moves to the egg (that's him in the middle).

Mom is eating the new food while Dad is trying to remember how to settle down on the egg (or so it seems). At least he's sheltering it.

Oops - spoke too soon - he just left. Mom is quietly eating - but the egg is uncovered.

Mom is continuing to eat this fish(?). This is a much more substantial meal, and I think she is very hungry. But I wish she hadn't urged Dad to leave - I'd feel much happier if the egg was covered.

Mom is back and settling in on the egg. I think there are leftovers from both meals, though perhaps not a lot.

Leftovers on the nest ! not much though !

Thanks Judy for your s'caps and obs..

I think if the weather was nice ... Mom would be happy to perch out front or do whatever and leave Dad incubate the egg ... she just wants to stay in the nest and wait for room service ...JMO

2:04pm - I have just been reading all the posts from today and share my concern with everyone else about the long time the egg has been left alone. That seems very odd to me - I tend to get worried if an egg is alone for 10 minutes! In addition to the cooling off of the egg I worry about another animal or bird stealing it! Let's hope that Mom and Dad switch back into "parenting mode" quickly, Lol.

Mom looking very wet and I can see the rain coming down on her.

5:25 - Mom calling out very vocal and loud. Leaves egg and off nest. Still calling out. Both near the nest now.
