:15heartbeat: Shortly after Jane's post, Lil Dad flew and I was trying to get to the stick cam and my finger accidentally hit cam 3. Dumb luck as Lil Dad landed between the orange column and building and I got to see him walk/run down the ledge toward the nest. He got on his eggs and when I went to the point, there was Niecey! She remained there and @ 7:10 Lil Dad flew to the point and we had a long mating! Lil Dad returned to the stick afterwards. At 7:19 Niecey flew and I got to the stick cam in time to see Lil Dad dive off (I think he thought Niecey wanted the stick and he was afraid of getting clobbered) the stick with Niecey landing on the ledge there and then going to the nest and she got on the eggs. I went to the point, but Lil Dad didn't show up and I went back and forth and no Dad, so I thought he had checked out a little early for the night under the circumstances. Then guess who pops up on the point @ 7:25 ... out faithful Lil Dad!! He stands guard every evening for awhile to make sure everything is okay with his family, before he goes to where he stays for the night! He flew @ 7:38 and Niecey remains lying on the eggs as I leave @ 8:00 EDT. :15heartbeat:

Edit to add: :16val: Thanks for your pics and commentary, ljames! I am seeing them as I am about to post. I am moving slow tonight, fighting to not go to bed right now! :12val:

I missed seeing Little Dad come to the eggs after my other post, and saw this falcon on the point that I didn't think was him. I got panicky, and then it hit me that it was Niecey. And I missed the canoodle. Working on the next egg, I guess. Sure hope she stops with four.

:15heartbeat: She's lying atop her eggs. It seems a little noisier than usual down there tonight.

About 6:15, I noticed Niecey who had been asleep lying on her eggs, raise and cock her head back. I thought here comes Lil Dad, she can hear him, but I couldn't. I went cam to cam and no Dad. So I thought, well maybe she heard something else. Then, loud and clear you could hear him, but not see him. At 6:17 he appears on the point with prey! I even got to see Niecey who obviously had swung out from the building in flight and then back in toward and upward arrive to the point and claim her gift and leave! He stayed on the point a bit, then on to the nest and is lying on his eggs. At 6:41 he raises and cocks his head, but there is no sound that I could hear. Guess what, Niecey has arrived back to the point. In a minute there are calls and Niecey is preening still on the point. I'm wondering if the 1st mating will be soon, but Lil Dad continues lying on his eggs.

At 7:04, after several calls, Lil Dad arrives to the point and we have a long mating. Niecey goes to the nest and Lil Dad arrived back on the point with a chunk of something clutched in his right talon. Then he begins to eat. I guess he stopped and picked up stash, before returning.

At 7:18 he flew to the ledge and gave Niecey the gift and she flew toward the U with it. (I think when I thought he had been eating earlier, he had actually been prepping, because later when I checked he had his back to me on the point, but I could see some feathers flying.) Lil Dad went to the stick. Niecey returned to the ledge near the nest @ 7:24 and went into the nest and Lil Dad left the stick and flew to the point.

As I leave, Niecey is lying on the eggs and Lil Dad is on the point preening. Will leave a tab up to listen for them ...

Really enjoy reading your very descriptive posts, SWINWK. As I type this, Niecey is on the eggs with Little Dad on the point. I saw the fluffy feathers on the point, and figured there had been a prey delivery earlier. At some point this morning I must run the errands that never got done yesterday. Maybe around 10 or so.

:15heartbeat: At 9:16 after some calls, I found Lil Dad walking away from the point toward the nest. Niecey has just stepped out of the box. Lil Dad takes his position over the eggs and Niecey flew as I can not find her on any of the cams! It is an easy-going morning here, Heida! :16val: +

Edit to add: At about 9:33, I heard some soft calls from Dad and came in and found him on the stick, but I don't see Niecey.

:16val: Me too! A lovely Sunday morning here. I see Lil Dad is back to lying on his eggs again.

Edit to add: Lil Dad is lying on the eggs and Niecey has not returned as I leave for awhile @ 10:40.

Came in @ about 2:09 and found Niecey lying on her eggs. She is awake and has been twisting her neck all around and looking upward ... I don't know if she can see something or hears something. I don't see or hear Lil Dad. Then she continues to look around, but not craning her neck. Lil Dad arrives to the point crying @ 2:28! He is standing on 1 foot with only a rare, soft, cry and looking around enjoying his peaceful day. At 2:48 Niecey left the nest and flew. I went to the point in time to catch her flying upward and landing to the left of Lil Dad which caused him to fly. He returned to mate, but she had not gotten into position so he aborted and swooped over her instead! :10val: She remains on the point, so maybe he will return shortly. At 3:00, she is back in the nest positioning herself over her eggs and Lil Dad has not returned. At 3:04 Lil Dad returned to the point with cries. Niecey remains in the nest. As I leave @ 3:40, Niecey remains on the eggs and Lil Dad on the point with an occasional soft cry. It's been a very well-deserved, peaceful, day for them from this vantage point!!

I saw Niecey cranking her head way around looking up at something. Not sure what she's looking at, but she did that last year also. Not sure if she's looking at that attachment for infrared on the cam above the scrape or not. it's quite warm here this afternoon. Showers are to arrive in the morning. Maybe another egg later tomorrow. Time will tell.
