EGG(s)
April 1, 2021
There is a reasonable probability to believe at least one egg   :D

Did she lay an egg on one of these dates?
We dont know, we cant SEE!
When they hatch we will know how close I was  ;D - or far
March 25
March 28
March 30

EGG(s)
April 2, 2021  Good Friday
Did she lay another egg pre-dawn today?

March 25
March 28
March 30
April 2

Thats judging by behaviors

5.15 am  Flash came in, looked behind Aero at his eggs.  Aero ignored him.  He seems happy and stays inside with her - seemed he is thanking her.  Good job, Babe! He stayed inside with her about half hour then left.  I am amazed!

6 am he arrived inside with brekky - and she MOVED for the first time in over an hour.
She took the prey and left, he laid down on eggs

EASTER EGG?
April 4, 2021  Easter Sonday
Did she lay another egg pre-dawn today?
4 am Aero perched on box, seemingly in a stupor
5 am Flash came in and laid on eggs

11.30 am  I am disturbed. Aero was OFF the eggs at 4 am when I got up.
An hour later she was still off.  Flash warmed them then both left.
For 5 hours no one was on the eggs very long.

6 am Flash arrives with BIG bird, she grabs it and flies off.  I think she may have dropped it

I think she laid an egg April 4, and I wondered if she laid another this morning.
I post this as a marker.  Til we see babies we know nothing.  *big sigh*
Both have been incubating, and Flash appears to decide he enjoys the eggs

Hatch yet?
April 27, 2021  dawn
Flash came in before sunrise with prey and offered it to Aero.
Aero posture on eggs appears different
Is an egg hatching?
The male typically brings prey to nest when he sees hatchling
He appears to be a happy Daddy - from what I can tell

Whats new pussycat?
May 7, 2021
7.45 am  Aero returns, Flash has been incubating.
She perchs outside, he stays inside.  Thats odd!
He is ALWAYS eager to be outta there in a flash (hence his name)

May 9, 2021 dawn
Flash flew in with prey and bumped Aero til she got up then he left - with the prey.

If this was a normal nest I'd say an egg is hatching, but this hasnt been a normal pair.

Flash DOES seem to like the eggs.

3 HATCHLINGS
Elephant in the .. bedroom!
   :D
May 10, 2021 dawn
Flash flew in with prey
He appeared to be eating it inside by Aero - I thot he was going to feed her
Flash bumped around, stepped on her, crashed behind her  LOL!
I dont believe this!
Finally he left - leaving the prey with her

This is the FIRST brood - I think for both of them!
Flash knew prey was needed
He is adorable in his clumsy way

4 pm  3 chicks!

Flash is sooooooooo proud - and soooooooooooo happy
me too  :)

4 HATCHLINGS - at least  :)
May 11, 2021
This is fun. I see 4 beeks and I wonder if there is a 5th
Aero seems much softer toward Flash
Flash very interested in his kids

3.30 am today I saw Flash inside with Aero, feeding his kids :egg11:

The kids are getting big enuf now for a family pic!
I am just amazed how much Flash likes to hang with the kids.
Aero actually has to physically EVICT him

 ;D
