Dad is up and standing beside the egg.

Now down on the egg. Now up and turning the egg. Looking off to the side (maybe seeing if Mom is watching what a good job he's doing - LOL).

It does seem as if the males often have trouble getting comfortable on an egg initially (not surprising - it's a big lump to lie on!) - but they do seem to settle into it after a couple of days. I wonder if it's easier when there are two or more eggs - thinking about sitting on a balance ball....

I suspect after yesterday ... he is suspicious and more cautious ... like us when something bad happens to us !

I checked the area around the nest and out front and I didn't see anything ..

Thanks Judy... and I remember Dad was like that last season with the egg/eggs

And off he goes. I'm thinking he saw Mom, but don't actually know that. I think he left at 8:12 am; egg is alone.

Adult lands with a BIG clump of moss. Not sure which adult, but if this is Dad, I think he's decided he needs some padding if he's going to sit on that egg!
