Hi everyone! I checked the embedded cams a few minutes ago (around 11:13 pm) and got this lovely picture of Dusk and Dawn:
20180517_012.jpg
but you'll notice the time stamp is wrong. I was going to go in and reboot the cams, but they went down while I was typing and just came back up with the right time, so maybe Ken beat me to it. I did get a picture of one of the chicks up for a brief bathroom run. :love:

And now that one is back down and preening, and bumping into the other one who is trying to sleep. Which is what I should be doing - bye!

2:47 am in rollback, Dawn was preening but then cuddled down with Dusk with both sleeping. At 3:40 am in rollback, both cuddled together and sleeping. Wondering if this is the first night Ma hasn't spent the night in the nest.
