Fantastic!!!!  Thank you, THANK YOU!  It's been a crazy day and I hadn't had a chance to check!  Here's one more and the dad came in to say hi.





At least they have them out far enough from the back to see now!

At 10:10 this morning dad brought in some prey.  The second egg must have hatched after dark last night or early this morning.  #2 is fluffy.  I think #3 hatched between 9-10 AM and is still wet.  Mom took the meal to prepare it and dad stayed...


#1 is up front with wet #3 behind him.  #2 is closest to the cam.  Mom is taking the meal from dad to go get it ready.


#1 has its head by the egg, #3 is behind him, and #2 towards the cam.


8 something PM and three with an egg...

5:52 AM and dad is waiting for mom to bring breakfast while the little ones get impatient.


He grabbed a chunk of leftover leg from a previous meal and was managing to get little pieces off...


Here comes mom (top center)...........


Now they're getting good pieces........

I wish we know who mom is, her band is really blue when the sun hits it and I don't know if it would be right, but looks like black/blue or blue over something else....


Still three and an egg this afternoon......

7:30 PM -- A meal came in, but mom must have decided she was hungry and took it and left!

GOOD MORNING!!!  Somewhere between 5:57 AM (3 and an egg) and 8:18 AM (3 fluffy and 1 wet) we have #4 who is going to be a feisty one.  It was already pushing and waving it's little wing when food came!


#4 is at the left side of the fluff pile right by the center bottom of picture.

Dad brought another meal and now all four are fluffy................any ideas on the feather lying there from earlier with the stripes?






It's hard to tell on here, but it looks like dad's band is black/red.  Wonder what the number is.........

I've always loved them at this age with the little round fluffy heads.  :)

They are so cute! I'll ask Doug if he can see band numbers internally. Last year's female had a black/blue band but we never ID'd the male.

Thanks, you guys!

  Thanks.  I thought that's what the colors looked like.

It's kind of tough to climb over a fluff pile this big to take a break.......

One parent soaring around before the meal comes...


Incoming blue jay for a snack...




The feathers were flying over the eager falconettes and they'd watch them go over and wait more.....


Finally time to eat...
