Mom went out for a bite at 5:30 giving us a good look at the eggs. This little owlet has been working on breaking through it’s shell for some time now, but it looks like there’s a definite pip now. There’s still a LOT of work to do to break through the shell, and we won’t declare the chick hatched until it’s head is completely out of the shell. Meanwhile, Mom’s laid in a tasty swamp rat and snuggled back on the eggs. At first light there’s a gentle rain beginning and the wind’s kicking up, but the eggs are plenty warm.
And for those of you who read this post all the way through, we have set up a new test of the DVR system. If you go to this page you will see the Cam2 DVR with up to a 4 hour lookback. It seems to be working OK. From there you can jump to the Cam 1 DVR but you might not find that it’s working just yet. For those who find their way to those pages, we would appreciate some feedback on how it’s working for you. Happy Hatchday all!
