The first chick on Nest 3 is thriving. Early this morning the female was feeding it.
Shortly afterwards she flew and the male was quickly down to show he is a good parent too!
This afternoon both were involved in another feed.
At the end of the video there is footage of a possible hole in egg 2. Perhaps more indicative of an egg hatching is a shift in the female’s behaviour from dozing to alert and frequent shuffling of the eggs. And the chick in amongst them!
Normally the second hatch would have happened by now. Although it isn’t clear when the egg was laid we are getting near the end of the hatch ‘window’. Let’s hope on the next download we see two chicks.
