Female is R/35 'Elizabeth', a 2022 hatch from Lock and Dam #1 in Minneapolis! I'm thinking maybe she was here all along...

About 2 PM Elizabeth sure puffed up while she was looking around.  Not sure if Mikey brought her something or not, she wasn't gone super long and he got a turn at the egg for a short time.




Mikey??


Mikey leaving the egg...

It's a wonder she hasn't broken that egg yet.........I keep watching her.  That poor girl has no idea what she's doing!

I think Alma switched it to the river where something was going on with a barge and switched it back this morning.
