Rosie on a nest break / No Hawk cam this season - March 27th, 2014

I got to see and take video footage of Rosie on an hour and a half long break from the nest today. At one point she was harassed by a pair of Mockingbirds. She eventually relieved Bobby of his egg-warming duties.

Try to watch the video in the HD setting if you are able (click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right of the video below and make your quality selection when at the new YouTube page).

In other news, I was informed (by a few reliable sources) there will not be a live webcast of the nest this year. If this spring's young survive, they should hatch between April 4th and 10th (give or take a couple of days) but won't be seen very well from the ground for another couple of weeks after that.
