And a good morning!  We have #1 so far!


Incoming breakfast...




That band almost looks like an "O" on top....


Either he got knocked over when the other parent left or we have a "problem child"  :D  Not to worry, he got snuggled up again with the shift change.

At 1407 (2:07 PM) dad came and mom took a break.  We finally get to see #2!




The white that looks like it is sticking out of #2's head on the sides is eggshell lying ahead of it.

1623 (4:23 PM) Dad brought a meal, showed it to mom, and left with it.  Mom then left and a couple minutes came back with it and both had a good meal before she took out the leftovers.

At 1935 (7:35 PM) dad brought a meal and mom took it to prepare it (get a lot of feathers off) and brought it back and fed them.  Sometimes I wonder if she's a new mom, she tries giving them such big pieces and they can't take them and she has to adjust the size.


I still think her band if black/blue, the blue was really showing up tonight...it's so cute the way they use their little wings like arms.  The left one is using the egg like the arm of a chair to rest it on...


They're both full now.  The crops have gotten full and heavy enough they've both caved in and mom took out the leftovers...
