The fourth chick hatched around midday today.

One egg left, with a mark on it that could possibly be a pip, or perhaps just nest dirt.

Looks like another hatch!
Mary Ellen is eating some shell right now, but the chick is covered.

One active chick visible and a huge pip on another egg--that one won't be long now!

Mary Ellen is chirping to the eggs, and the little one is chirping back.

Their aspect ratio on their camera is a little squashed.
