Lots of activity in the nest here lately.  Chicks have been very vocal, and one even left the scrape for a few minutes this morning.  You can see the darker feathers starting to come in, does anyone know when the chicks will be banded?

I think there should be some sprucing up of the scrape, it's a mess!
LOL, gran! I'll second that! ;)

Tuned in just in time to see Dad feeding four adorable fluffy wobblies :-*

After the feeding, one chick was on his/her back and couldn't seem to be able to get up.  I've seen that before with greedy chicks with over-full chicks crops, but this one seemed smaller as well - might've just been the camera angle.  Lil Dad attempted to cuddle with his kids for awhile, but Niecey would have none of that...

I've been watching for a while, and she won't move but I do see the eggshell so I guess we'll just have to wait until she is good and ready to show her baby.

There's been a hatch!  Not sure if this is the first one.  The way Niecey was sitting with her wing out earlier, looked as though there might be a chick although there was no egg shell in the nest and no sign of a fluffie.  There's definitely egg shell now ;D

There are now 4 eggs in the nest. Cute to watch Lil Dad try to cover them.

 As I was watching it started to snow, I think this is Lil Dad.
