***Our first egg was on apr 24th. I suppose it won't matter much because technically they could all hatch on the same day or very close. It has happened before.
***I had no problem getting in today and I have one PC on this site & the other beside me to my left with the Enmax Camera rolling. One is a 24 inch screen & the other 26. I get a good view when everything is working.
***There's signs of sunshine & maybe we'll have a nice day.

Good to see you here this morning Judy. I hope that means that the forum is fixed.

There is quite the contrast in the behaviour of Mom and Dad while they incubate. Green LOL of course Mom does have the larger body and brood patch.

Mom looks cosy in her beautifully bark-lined nest. Dad has done a good job while he sat, and he also
cooled the eggs a fair bit too.

8.25 am Mom seems interested in the trees on the zoo rim. She just attended to her eggs and remains in the same position.

Good morning JD and Ernie. I don't think we're 100% fixed because I had run into the DNS problem this morning a couple of times, but we're getting there.

840 a.m.
Dad just arrived with a thin branch.

He decided while he was on the nest to move that piece of bark in front of Mom but she didn't seem to want any part of that so she arranged it to her liking once he was gone.

Dad brought Mom a fish. She didn't waste any time accepting it before she flew off with it.

9.45 am Dad is on the eggs doing his favorite thing chewing bark as he incubates. Nodding yes I seem to have lost my last post and my cam went off too so I'll bow out for awhile. I edited last night's post (thanks Ernie). I hope we don't get that thunderstorm...aren't we supposed to have heat first? Dunno

10.00 am Dare I say it ..
Dad is well-behaved this morning. Wub
Mom must have come in while my cam was down.

Well I just go back to the post and hit the edit button make the changes and then hit submit again. I think there is a limited time period that is available.

There have been several cotg this afternoon. ..the last one at 3.23 pm when Dad delivered some fish to Mom which she readily flew off with. Fish

Dad has the nest nice and comfy once more with the added bark...so glad he can multi task like that!

It was after 9 pm when I tuned in to see Dad on the nest, facing the river as he was in the latter part of the afternoon when the sun finally came out to shine on him.Sunny

I'm sure that Mom would have been in taking a shift or two between then and now. When she returned after dark at 9.50 pm Dad exited the river side of the nest as Mom flew in from the zoo side both traveling at high speed.
Quite impressive.Announcement

At 10.12 Mom sits quietly in her nest. Good night
