The female was putzing in the nest box a little after 10 AM and picking gravel.  About 1010 Mac brought her a midmorning snack and she took it and dove between the nest box and perch and left.

About 11:20 our lady came back and sat a few minutes in the sun and wind before putzing a little inside and then settling up on the bricks at the near end to preen.

Mom sat on the perch for some time and did make a trip in and checked out the eggs and spent a few minutes quality time with them.

A shift change this afternoon and didn't realize until I looked at the screen shot that I caught dad flying up to the perch (over to the right).




He had a bit of a time getting over all the eggs, but that's par for the course with the dads.  :)  There goes a barge!
