March 31st thru April 8th were when these were laid.  It's May 10th today, incubation is approximately 32 days.  Come on you guys!

I think this was about 1 PM, always have trouble figuring out the time on this one...........
Mackey out....


Mom on her way in and settled...

1:00 PM  I'd swear over the last hour when shifting around there has been a new hatch being pushed back with the eggs and then now some fluff moving......hope I'm not wrong, but have goofed before and no one is getting up.

Yes that definitely was fluff!




Earlier I thought an egg was outside of a wing, but maybe it was half of a shell or out there while one was hatching.  Otherwise I haven't been seeing any pieces of shell!

Taking a break...






Finally a full view...


In comes a first meal, but she stayed with her back to the cam so we couldn't see anything and then settled in...


Guess you lost the inside job for a while........

I know, I prefer them getting other things too.  They seem to get a lot of orioles at that nestbox.

The feeding a little after 4 PM had one plus eggs.

The 7:05 PM feeding has TWO plus eggs.  :)  Not up to eating yet though, but did try to raise its little head.

I believe this is two hugging an egg, so two and two.  :)  I'm on my way out to cut grass, so hopefully can at least check in after while.

About 6:05 PM when there was shifting around I saw a pip and an egg tooth or beak tip came through the hole.  I couldn't find it again.  I wonder if#3 is trying.

 :D Oh my goodness.  She must have had her feet down under the three little ones and the egg.  Mackey brought some food and she was in such a hurry leaping for the ledge there was fluff falling every which way.  It's hard to tell from this picture, but I tried.  They HAD been in a nice compact little pile.
