Calico Tom arrived for a peek at the new one. He beaked around Audrey and finally picked up a small stick that she took from him and placed in front of her. Then, she slowly got up and allowed him a nice look at the new chick, before lying back down again. Satisfied, he flew! :5val:

:girlsad3: I wondered what was taking so long for the next egg to hatch here and this may explain it. One of the eggs was broken and removed from the nest bowl this morning. Video of event by Regina Hornung:

:buzzybee: The 3rd egg has not hatched and no pip seen as yet. Today there were 2 intruders who didn't even seem to notice the alerts by Calico Tom and Audrey! Video by Regina Hornung:

From Poppy very early this morning on the 3rd egg here:

Happy Thursday, Osprey Friends!

After the loss of one egg, we are still waiting for the next chick to hatch. Depending on which egg is still in the nest, the hatch should happen any time soon. Watch out for the blunt end – the end with the darker blotch – that is where a pip will show up. However, it will be very hard to spot a pip since it is covered with debris.

Today is Day 41 after egg # 3 was laid. We are still in the hatch window, since Audrey’s chicks hatch between Day 39 and Day 41. However, after Day 50 an egg is considered as a fail. That might occur for various reasons: It might not have been fertilized, the development might have stopped at a certain point, due to tiny hair cracks in the shell that made it possible for bacteria to get in, biological reasons stopping the embryo from developing, too dry and hot weather. And then there are failures, caused by crows, e.g. they crack an egg while raiding a nest, hail storms, accidents like dropping heavy sticks or stepping on it.

:buzzybee: Audrey just scared me moving an unwieldy stick that the chick was within, but she finally got it placed and then Calico Tom flew in to join his family. I believe this is day 50 for the last egg, so just 1 chick for them this season.

This chick looks huge now! Audrey is currently lying on the nest with it as it preens.
