Dad arrived with a very small stick. It must be his offering so he can take a turn at the eggs.

Mom leaves so he can take over.

Dad is having a great time playing with the shredded bark. He gets his beak right into it and gives it a good shake.
It makes me wonder if he brings it to the nest for his own pleasure, much like a hobby, while Mom's away.

7:14 a.m.
Nothing new to report. Watching incubation is almost the equivalent of watching grass grow so I will sign out now and get my chores done around home and stop in again a bit later.

Much like chewing gum eh Judy? It releases tension and passes the time I guess.

Good morning Calgary. Sunny I wonder if everyone can access the forum? We haven't seen Bet yet and Christine was having trouble too. I am spending most of the day with my granddaughter....turned the cams on early to see the second egg at Hellgate and there was a similar time period between eggs...2 days and 18 hrs. Now I'm wondering if this is consistent year to year. Puzzled

THis is the first time I have been able to access the forum. From what I see you all have had it most of the time.

I have nothing to post at this time regarding the O's as you all have kept it up.

Good to hear from you Bet! I am on my cell phone and its hard for me to type. Grin

Just saw a cotg at 9.22 am when Mom flew down to the nest. Dad arose and mated with Mom before flying off a minute later. The O's are enjoying the sun on them this morning. Mom looks very peaceful at 10.00 am.

Please post if you are watching. Byebye Have a great Saturday everyone.

***I guess I should have looked harder for an edit button but I didn't see one. I will look right after I post this comment. I've had the nest on camera most of the day but I haven't seen the eggs today, bad timing on my part. The camera freezes once in awhile so I have to shut that screen and re-start from the Enmax site.
***This has been edited & it works. Thanks! I will never be computer literate.

BET, good to see you back online. I hope we don't have many more members unable to make access. The system should be all cleared by this time.

3:48 pm
Mom was doing a bit of chattering and watching someone flying unseen above her.
Then along came Dad for mating. He surprised me when he came straight down from above the camera.

Once he left Mom checked her eggs and settled in again.

4:06 p.m.
Mom was up fluffing the bowl before settling in to face the camera..

I haven't been watching a lot today and probably won't be for awhile yet. My niece had twins last weekend so this great aunt has been busy getting some knitting done.
