OK - I will zoom the NPTZ and look for Dad.

Nice egg shot, Yolande!

3:51pm - Mom leaves the egg and goes to branch and then flies off.


One of them is down by the river.



Sharp eyes, Gail!! Just wonder who that is - maybe Mom because that's the direction she flew in?

Don't see anything at the riverview now - but the mist has moved in so it would be difficult anyway.

Could hear a lot of trilling a few moments ago and I'm sure you heard that too, Bev and Gail.

Hi Pat! Definitely is confusing behaviour.....!

The egg has been uncovered for a little more than 20min so far....

4:13pm Yay - but I don't know who it is lol Looks like Dad to me..but not sure...

I didn't see a band and saw that black tail feather too, Bev. I guess Mom had the buscuit and just left...Dad has settled on the egg after digging in the nest cup..I think he might have rolled the egg a bit too.
