The male who was on the nest voor his turn to keep the egg warm, came off as I offered some bread . After his meal, he returned to it, to keep it warm in this very cold weather.

    Mom’s got him well trained….. I can’t wait to see the babies!!!
    Have a great day!!!

  • Thank you Carolyn.
    It will be the first week in May, not sure this first one will survive the cold..
    Mostly the last egg has problems, as when they go for their first swimming ( and food ) lessons, the las one is not able to leave the nest.
