From 1:54 and at least until 3:53 there was a man taking photos.

Ernie, was this you?

When ever I saw him I think only Mom was visible. Perhaps he caught images of Dad from other positions. He really only made brief appearances in the area that he was visible in the cam video

Wonderful scaps ty Bet and Judy. Hi Ernie and Carolyn. I have been looking in when I can but typing on my phone is slow for me! Mom spent a.lot of time here again today so eggs should come soon. She stayed until 9 pm last night but left before 8 tonight...perhaps due to the rain beginning. We have below normal weather predicted for the next week or more with snow in the forecast too. It is raining pretty good now just after 11 pm. Both O's are looking good and so is the nest so it should be another good year here. Good night

Good morning Everyone.

I slept late this morning so when I finally brought up the cam ( approx 7:20 a.m.) Mom was on the nest standing in the fog but she left before I could get a screen capture. The nest is now currently empty.

8:18 a.m.
Nest still empty. I restarted the camera a couple of times thinking it was frozen on an empty nest but it is running fine. Where the heck are Mom and Dad ?

8:39 a.m.
Still nobody home. This is a very strange morning.

8:46 am
Finally Dad arrived to do a bit of tidying up.

Seconds later Mom arrived. Good to know they are both accounted for so that I can get on with my day.

Sorry! but no it wasn't me. I didn't go down there yesterday. Maybe later this week if the sun shines nice & warm.

Use a bit of imagination. The nest bowl now looks like a heart.

Sorry I haven't been able to post today. It was Dog Day - Baths, grooming, changing all their bedding, laundry, cleaning up dog hair (cut and clippered) etc. Yes, I can only say I must be a glutton for punishment as I have had long haired big dogs for over 45 years now. My lower back is making lots of complaints about it.
