    Just a quick update. Mama is coming to my whistle, but there is still no sign of her mate. Today she laid a third egg. In years past, I’ve had a mother disappear after the eggs have hatched. The father raised the clutch successfully. If the father is gone for good, would the mother abandon or raise them herself? She seems very timid compare to her erstwhile mate.
