:-*  We have at least one hatch here!  I think the hatch was yesterday but needed to see food go in there, that happened this morning!

Whoo-hoo, well done Hurricane & Wingo!
So nice to see Hurricane with multiple chicks after her years with Sol.  Not his fault, some pairings just aren't as successful as others - and some years are harder than others!

Nice that the chicks are small, given the storms rolling across southern Manitoba.  Forecast says Brandon might not get as much rain as other parts of the province, but winds are always an issue - fortunately, it looks like the winds will swing more westerly during the overnight hours.  Hurricane has had lots of experience - besides, she was hatched the year of the Elie Tornado, so to say she was born to handle storms couldn't be more appropriate!

May 7 2020

I believe hard incubation started on May 3, 2020.  :)

 It looks like Hurricane is still laying eggs, no hard incubation yet.   :)

I'm thinking she has an least one egg.  :)  I haven't been down there much this spring, so my above photos are what I've been seeing for the past week. I haven't seen anyone laying down in the box yet but Wingo is in there a lot.  ;D

What do you think RCF?  To me that looks like Hurricane in the midst of egg-laying or taking a wee break in the morning sun at the start of incubation ...

Not much going on here and I only check every couple of days. You know a drive by, with...... maybe a few quick stops.  ::)  Anyway it looks like Hurricane is thinking about eggs in the near future. She's been perched at the nest box or very near it for the last few days.  Wingo is never far away. :-*  She was sitting at the bottom of the clock tower and Wingo underneath her on the roofed window where the camera was.
