EGG
March 14, 2022
8 am  Lady Hawk made her first visit to the nest in a couple days.  Its been full of snow.  The cam has captured them on rooftops etc.  She brings more twigs.  She dreses her nest, reminds me of Osprey.

3.30 pm she *may* have laid her egg - havent seen it yet
She got up and yes - THE EGG!
Sure looked like hard work
2 nest views

Shep, Amy posted the following this morning.  Your three eggs picture was probably during this time period: 

"Hi, everyone! I finally got around to creating the 2022 threads by splitting the existing threads at the first 'Happy New Year's' Post, or at the first post in 2022, whichever applied. Unfortunately, a file corrupted and I lost posts back to my last backup, which was Sunday, March 20. I apologize for losing four days of posts!

At any rate, post away and etc. :)

Amy Ries"

Linda - Thanks for the reminder. I lost my last post, too, and it's just too funny to lose. Found it!

April 11, 2022
6 am  the male flew in.  She refused to get up.  The past 2 days he's just flown off and returned with prey.  Today he insisted she leave.

Ensues the sweetest gentlest 'fight' I've ever seen!
He stands over her, touchs her with his beek, bumps her with his chest, increasingly insistent.  Finally she gets up and leaves.

I blew up the eggs and saw nothing - but after she turned them there appeared to be a hole in one.  (not a golf term)

I will keep an eye. Hatch is close if not today.

11 am  Here are the eggs
 Male came to the nest - stomped around - she vocalized - he kicked her off - literally

5.45 pm  Male brings prey to nest, female takes it away, male incubates.
One egg *may* be starting to hatch.  Maybe by morning we have a lil hawklet

The weather's been AWFUL - rain, snow, both, wind
