It appears that hatching has begun because the female is often not in incubation posture.

As we arrived (3:51 pm) one was coming to the nest with a fish and just as quickly took off with the fish . I assumed it was the male for the other was hunkered down . At 4:07 pm the other one returned to perch in the tree . Cleaned (?) it's beak for a few minutes (pic 1283) then flew across the way got a drink , which is the first time I have ever seen this , (pic 1354) waded in the water and returned to the tree (pic 1408) then she left again at 4:16 pm While the male did the egg sitting I'm assuming ---- Time now 10:19 pm ------

On 04/21 there was another storm 04/22 the nest was fine but I didn't see the pair but I heard one in the nest . I was concerned that something happened to one of them 04/23 He was in the tree she was hunkered in the nest . He flew to the nest then she flew to the tree and had difficulty landing on the branch " Oh no she's injured " after further observation I realized that her leg must have been asleep from laying on eggs I assume this because as she was shaking and stretching her leg he hunkered down in the nest I was quick to think she was injured because from what I read I thought it would be three weeks before she layed more eggs and as of 04/22 only ten days have passed since the last one were lost due to a storm . Time now 1:42 pm ----- Leg pics 04/23 --- 0400 - 0404 - 0412
