Hi Maddy! How wonderful it is to come here and read your posts! Thank you so much. Shadow has really stepped up. Bringing in food for Mrs BB and incubating the eggs.

6:14 pm Shadow returns with a nice clump of grasses.

He gently gives Mrs BB a few pushes with his foot to let her know he is ready to incubate the eggs.

Finally Mrs BB gets up to take a break.

Temp and wind at 3:09 pm.
