At dawn Flash is inside with his egg kids when Aero flies up,
vocalized and leaves.
There is a wee dusting of snow.  Its C O L D!

Has something happened?
April 12  Temp 45

10 am I looked in and no one home!
Waited awhile, Flash came, went inside, looked confused, looked around.
He appears to be incubating.

1.45 pm Flash still on eggs
oops nope - he flew off
2.30 pm  box empty

3 pm Aero arrives.  Gone 5 hours.  why?  She looks nervous.

We sure cant see much

3.30 am - yes thats correct  8)
3.30 am  Flash brought a HUGE bird and dragged it into the nestbox.  Aero of course took it right out again and left Flash with his young.  I am laughing.  He is so like a clumsy child with a BIG heart.  I think he is worried she left for so long yesterday.

I know when they moved the cam to view the whole nest box, it startled her.  Are they playing with the cam?  I dont know.

MYSTERY SOLVED
April 14, 2022
4.15 am Flash brings prey to Aero
She accepts it and flies off

I asked bev to record this box on her webcam.  She wrote ....
there is a door on left of box, as you are looking at box.
someone had it wide open for a bit and then closed it.

THANKS TO BEV on bcaw
THATS what scared her!
If they opened that big door inside nest box - cam left - she'da been spooked!
Thats how they take the chicks out to band them

I am thankful Aero returned after 5 hours.  Eggs should be fine. 
Flash kept them warm enuf and temp wasnt freezing

EXTRA NOTE from history
Apr 16, 2015  The DNR guy was there to take pictures of the eggs.
Would DNR so disrupt nesting birds???

CONCERN
May 1, 2022
7 am  Flash had been on the eggs and Aero arrived to take over.
Flash left.  Aero stayed a short while, got up - left.
After maybe 5 minutes she returned - I think its her ....

I dont know whats up here.
Flash has had egg duty a lot.
Yesterday he was on the eggs a long time, Aero returned - but left again.

Eggs should be nearing time to hatch.
