Three eggs in nest per insta cam. Female continues to incubate with male in and out of nest...

Sadly, a big commotion on the nest occurred and Mom was unable to defend her chick. Mother Nature at work. But I am devastated.

Now the female is hunkered down on her eggs and we wait. :-)

Delighted, to say the least, 3 eggs as of 5/2!

They have been doing nestorations furiously since arriving and I can only hope that they will have eggs this year.

At least these birds care enough about the cleanliness of the nest, thus the broom!
