Assuming I have my IDs correct, Savannah just came down off the perch, and moved near the nest bowl. Derek got up, and went up to the perch. Now Savannah has moved to the side of the nest box, moved around the edge a ways, and then went to the nest bowl, turned the egg, and settled in.

Up and doing a bit of digging in the nest, then back down again.

I think Savannah is still on the nest, and she's been up and down a couple of times digging in the nest and rearranging things. She just rolled the egg, and is now digging on the other side of the nest cup.

(Why am I reminded of stories of women who get up at 3 am and scrub the kitchen floor just before having a baby?)

Definitely Savannah on the nest - Derek just arrived with a beak full of grass and little sticks - one of which had leaves at the end, so it looked almost as if he was bringing her a bouquet. love He has a unique way of running (or maybe it's the fact that he does sort of run that's unique) so I'm pretty sure of my IDs at least until the next time I blink. I didn't get a s'cap of him with the bouquet - he was facing the wrong way every time I tried to get a snap.

3:00 minutes into the video.
Savannah is looking fluffed up, but I'm not seeing contractions or rocking. Thought she was starting that when I began to record, but now I'm less certain.

Stopped video at 5 minutes, starting a new one at 4:56 pm.

Added - glad you're here, Bev. I do think she's getting close, though I'm not sure where she is in the process.

Added - I thought I saw a little flip of the tail just before I started to record - so it is possible that she already has the egg.

Yes she does! Just saw two briefly at 4:30 in the second video!

Added - from the video at about 5 pm

I'll upload the two videos now - I'm thinking she either laid the egg right at the beginning of the first one, or maybe just before I started to record.
