Based on the data, we are guessing that incubation may have started between the 12th and 16th of April. This is just an estimate, though.

observer reports: adult hanging out on the edge of the nest, hops back into nest. Adult flies off and SURPRISE!!, returns with a small branch that is dropped into the nest. Adult hovers after dropping the branch, then flies off. The other adult is in the nest arranging the dropped branch. Adult returns to nest “empty handed” but proceeds to perch on the edge of the nest and preen him (her) self. Both adults in the nest. Lots of tail wagging and wing flapping.
