Adult is back to picking at a piece of nest material while incubating - still not sure who this is.

Whoever was on the perch by the river just left, and someone just arrived on the nest (I think the same someone, but can't be sure - only basing that on timing).

I'm now thinking Dad - but not easy to tell if I can't see the band or the little stripe in the tail. Bev?

Hi Bev, Judy, Gail and all! Just catching up on all the posts and what an interesting morning!! It seems more normal in some ways, but leaving the egg unattended isn't something I remember the H's doing before. Maybe, as Bev said, they got some instructions from the Delta 2 pair Wink

Mom's settled on her egg and has been pulling nesting material closer. How wonderful to have NO rain so far today Left thumb up

Thanks for the ID confirmation, Bev - I just don't remember seeing her this fidgety before. Other than that, everything was pointing towards it being Mom. And I supposed she does have to put everything back where it belongs, after Dad moved it all this morning! lol

Hi Yolande and happy to see you here ... you are right the H's never diid leave their egg/eggs unattended but as Judy said

Bev, I don't know about the time they're spending by the river. I think it's unusual for them - my impression was that they rarely left the nest untended once the first egg had been laid - which is why their two eggs that are usually laid 4 days apart usually hatch 4 days apart. But I think it's not unusual in general - Delta 2 often has its two eggs hatch either the same day or a day apart, and I remember one year that we wondered if they had forgotten they had laid an egg (I think it may not even have been covered at night - but if I'm remembering correctly it hatched; and I know they have left their first egg untended for long stretches even if I'm wrong about that particular egg).

If this means they may have chicks that hatch a bit closer together, that may be a good thing in the long run.
