7:32pm.....Trooper got up to roll the eggs........but at this rate we won't see any pips......he isn't lifting up much, the bowl is deep and the cams aren't zooming in right away..........a little frustrating.

Some dark areas on one egg.........doesn't look like a pip though.

By this time of the night I'd hope she's already eaten. It is good to see her taking as much time as she can now off the nest. Once the eggs hatch she will be here more.

7:44pm.....Ma came to the nest and Trooper got up. The cams were aimed there well and I tried to look at the eggs........cam controls are not responding well, so they don't zoom in when needed. The bowl is deep with grass around the edge. Didn't see much of the eggs.

They eat mostly off nest right now. Having food lying in the nest attracts unwanted visitors which they don't want. Once chicks are here food will need to come in for them so we will see more food in the nest then.

6:17 am in rollback, Ma was up to roll her eggs at 6:02 and here she is ready for a break and flies. Trooper quickly comes to the nest. He must have been in the top of the tree is the tree trunk wiggled before he landed.
