Nesting Diaries

10/06/2013 by Clay
Four eggs were laid. Three hatched and one did not. Ten days later the fourth egg hatched and there were 4 fledglings, although by that time the fourth was very small compared to the others. One week later, one of the first three fledglings died. After 1 more week, the undersized fourth fledgling died. The remaining two survived and thrived.
