12.28 pm Mom is still on the nest and here comes Dad. He is respectful for a change and has not nudged her off the eggs yet. Rather Dad nestles beside her they are so cute together. Wub

You did see the third egg Jean

Labor began around 11:27. The last two pushes were at 11:31:59 and 11:32:02

She stood and kept everything covered. Then she bent over - two eggs visible but she was turning a third

The first frame where I could actually see the third egg - well a very tiny bit of it as she kept shifting her feet pulling the three together

12.43 pm yes after nestling by Mom's side since his arrival he finally sweet talks Mom into rising and we see the 3 beautiful eggs again.

***Sheila & I are heading down to the nest area in a few minutes. I will try standing by the 3 rocks & waving at the camera.

***That's us! It was cool with a bit of a breeze along the river. All we could see from that location was the bottom of the nest with the sticks hanging over. Daddy-O briefly landed on the nest but it happened so fast I didn't get the camera up before he was gone. He landed in the tall poplars less than 100 yds. west of the nest, I took his picture a few times from underneath but haven't looked at them yet. We also saw the mule deer in the zoo as well as the musk ox.


PS: I just picked 2 pictures & added them on.
