The day after....

On an impossibly gorgeous March morning, Kay Meng caught the tiercel flying proudly above his nest containing this year's first egg.

 Thanks to the Ustream camera we had a great close-up of the egg when the formel stood up to rearrange herself...

 ... before settling back.

 Soon, the tiercel arrived with breakfast...

... which was of great interest to his mate - thanks to Janette Benner for this image.

As soon as she finished eating, she got ready to take off...(thanks again to Janette Benner for these next two images)

... leaving the tiercel on egg duty...

... looking a little nervous?

The next egg will likely arrive sometime on Sunday, so stay tuned!


  1. Exquisite photos of our boy in flight. What a spectacular bird. This is a wonderful privilege to watch this evolve and
    I can't thank you all enough for sharing all. Your hard work is so appreciated.

  2. Thanks again & again Della for producing all of the sights and signif
    icant events on your blog and Facebook. May not comment on every one
    but I am lurking, always, usually without the words to express how lucky
    we are to have you at the helm.

  3. Thanks, CC and Peg - that's very kind of you.

  4. Yes, Della, I rarely comment but I wanted you to know that I really enjoy each blog entry. Thanks for all your efforts. Can't wait for the eyasses to appear!
