look at the motions she's making - tail up and down
I can't tell if she has her wings propped
if she gets all fluffed up it's a sure sign
OMG that's her incubation pose - SHE DID LAY AN EGG!
WE have egg 1!
yep beak plant and wiggle again as she settled over it
but I can't see it
Life is peaceful on the Whirley Crane. There are occasional visitors or harassers when a fish is brought to the nest, but our pair are well versed in dealing with such annoyances. Rosie spends most of the time on the nest, incubating the two eggs, but when Richie brings her a fish, she gets up and takes it to her strut and he happily takes over the incubation. We get an occasional glimpse of the two eggs. It appears that there will be no third egg this year.
Below, our chatter Absent Corvid caught the series of actions of Rosie getting a fish on May 3, 2023 at
6:23 pm. First Richie flew in the fish.
Meanwhile, the ships come and go, and the chatters talk about this and that, and the world turns.
If all goes well, the chicks should hatch near the end of May. The incubation period is normally 35-38 days. See FAQs for more information.
And see the GGAS Youtube page for videos of the action.
