Wow Maddy!!! Excellent observations at the nest today. It looks like it was really busy. Thank you so much for all the great posts and pics.

Well the cam was just having stalling issues for me. Mrs BB got up to eat but don't know if the little ones were fed or not. When the cam came back up Mrs BB was going to brood the chicks again.

Don't you think Shadow is turning out to be a great mate for Mrs BB? I'm still waiting for Shadow to try to do a feeding. That is going to be interesting.

Shadow is just great, I love him! I guess one day he'll try to do a feeding when kids are a bit bigger.
Mom had to get him off the kids, haha

You could be right Maddy. Shadow will feed when the kids get a bit bigger.

6:40 pm The wind seems to have calmed a bit. Hope it continues to go down. Mrs BB is looking a bit sleepy.

Going to wish everyone a :nite: Thank you again Maddy for all of the great documentation of the nest today.
