Nest Watch, sitting day 10


Shes been steadfast for ten days now, only six more till hatching can begin. No luck so far with my attempts to get shots of Mr feeding Mrs, but will try again.


Mrs went out yesterday and visited the bird bath to bathe and stretch, so I had a chance to see the eggs - all appears well there. Will keep you posted!

Me too! Tehehe Sunday the 14th seems alot further away than it really is...I wonder if she will even get off the nest for a break that day if they are hatching - cant wait to see! :)

It's hard to wait but we don't have a choice! Darn! Those eggs look spectacular! How close are you actually getting to take that picture?

Lavender said...

Hi BetteJo, its worse than waiting for chirstmas, LOL!
For the egg shots Ive got the lens within 6 inches...for the bird shots Im about 20 feet away - I dont want to get too close, wouldnt be nice to stress out Mamma bird :)

Fantastic photos! Is it just the lighting, or do the eggs look more solid, less transluscent than before?

Barkfoot Excellent observation Mate! Yes, they do look more...opaque, yeah, thats a good word for it....and thats a good sign when it comes to eggs!

Nick Only 6 more days till something should start to happen! Im like a kid at chrismas...cant wait to see what the chicks will look like - hang in there with me!
