Same here SHEP.  I tried freeze framing and couldn't tell.  She is still doing a lot of shimmying.  Love the false eyes on the top of her head.  She is so beautiful.

Not sure what is going on but mom seems very upset with older chick.  She picked him up by wing and tossed him to the outside of her.  The chick seems to have a sore on its wing.  Mom just left to get food.  Have not seen the male for awhile.
#5 egg has not hatched and is visible now.  Maybe she is upset because male is not bringing food?

That many kids all at once and I'd probably be upset with all of them.  ;)

LOL Nora, I hope she doesn't hurt the older chick.  I am sure that they are just hungry. :(

Finally, I saw dad deliver food this morning.  It must be raining very hard because he was soaking wet.  Still can't tell if the 5th egg hatched.  There were some egg shells in the corned that mom was eating with dad's food delivery.  I am relived to see dad.

This afternoon the smallest of the 4 kestrels has been over against the left wall away from the female and the other three. When prey was brought in, the little one is not being fed at all.  It was calling for food, but not making at attempt to move toward the others.

This morning I count 4 heads, and the smallest one is being fed.  Surprised, but glad to see this.
