Ma gets up out of the nest bowl to go see what Pa brought her, and it looks like Pa maybe goes up into the tree (was too zoomed in to see).

Then I was zoomed in on both cams so didn't really see when/where Ma went. Such cuties! Can see one beak.

Thanks SueD for posting. Kind of tough to zoom and post so really happy you got some shots.
All my first shots are from the W Cam because it was kind of tough to see anything with the E Cam.
Look at this little cutie looking up at Pa (I'm assuming). So adorable! :rh:

8:23 am - Awww, I am just not going to be able to get enough shots of these little ones. I haven't seen the 2nd one's head yet. Seems like they are joined at the hip, lol.

8:25 am - from the E Cam - wish this one was clearer but the little one was moving so quickly.
2018-04-12 11_48_47-Greenshot.jpg
8:22 am - And I know this is going back a few minutes but I think this is Ma leaving the nest with the food that Pa brought to her.

8:58 am - Pa was up but the E Cam hesitated and I wasn't able to get in quickly enough to see more than just a couple fluff balls.

9:12 am - Pa was up again and between going back to the rollback and posting I keep missing zooming in. Going to try to keep a better eye on him and keeping more zoomed in now.

Pa thought about moving the egg shell out but then left it there.

Hi Bev! Thanks Marg for posting that shift change.
Sorry but I had to log off the cams. Cams are sticking so badly I can't even get them to zoom in when I want. Will have some s'caps shortly of the most recent change over.

9:48am..........Good morning Delta2 friends! Wow, what a wonderful gift to find when coming here today! I had expected that hatch later on today, not overnight so this is a surprise for sure! The second egg hatched about 11 hours after the first one.............what precision Ma and Pa!!

Thanks to all of you for such terrific s'caps and much thanks to our amazing zoomers! :grhug:
