Egg is beginning to hatch - April 16th, 2017

9:30AM. Happy Easter! At 9:14AM this morning Bobby visited the nest. Sadie got up and they both stood and looked at the eggs:

They reminded me of this moment when Bobby and Rosie both looked upon their first egg hatching of 2013:


Bobby moved a little bit and I could see a hole forming in the egg:

There was obvious movement inside the egg and the hole got bigger as the baby was pipping at the shell.

Sadie then sat down on the eggs a couple of minutes later and Bobby flew away.
