She was in and out a lot today and checking the scrape.  She's just been staying there tonight!  Hope I get a chance to check in the morning before we have to leave for a visitation.

At 0016 she finished some preening and settled down on the scrape.

0026 -- up again, but still there.

0044 -- perched on the lip of the nest box.

0124 -- back to the scrape.

Boswel and Hassie  8)

he perched outside on watch
7 am thot she laid egg but no.  It will come today  8)

Hope you got some sleep Nora, condolences on whoever passed
No IR here and no sound - but 2 cams - at least thats nice

This pair seems to be very nicely bonded, judging by watching them.
It does not appear they have been named so lets name them.
How do you like
Male - Boswel
Female - Hassie  (Cohasset)

I like names!

It fellow that died was a plant manager where Joe used to work before he retired, but thank you.

That's wonderful! I looked until it got too dark last night, she sure looked like she wanted too.  Dad came around 6:00 and sat on the perch and she stayed in somewhat near the egg.

Nora, you got any guesses if Hassie is a young or old female?
I suspect she is older - but I am far from an expert
Bos is an attentive male.

I'm really not sure on any ages.  AMY might have an idea.  I'll see if I come up with anything.

I see they had some SNOW overnight.

Yep sometime overnight since dad got to help out this morning.


She let dad have a turn on them after looking back to be sure he was on them ok.  :)
