Next time perhaps, I should use a tripod so the pictures have perfect symmetry?! Hey, I’m just excited that I was able to see and photograph the event!! ~~ At one o’clock the nest looked exactly the same as it has for two weeks. 1:45-1:47 and I’m curious because one egg looks slightly different. 1:50 and a crack appears. ~~ I published the first batch of pictures at 3:20 while monitoring the TV and taking more pictures. It’s 4:00 as I publish additional pictures. Stay tuned; more to come. (You think these are repetitious? These are the best of one-hundred-plus shots!!) I’m curious about Mama’s absence from the nest. For days, and weeks, she has been on the nest every time I monitored it. This is extremely interesting to me!! Note the time stamps: All this in less than three hours.
