I checked the nest today and there are now 5 eggs. This is the first year I have had 5, so I am hoping they all hatch and fledge. Mama is not sitting on the nest at this time, I think it is just too chilly for that. Only a high of 60 degrees today. Strange weather to say the least.
Checked the nest again about 1/2 hour ago after I saw Mama fly out, and to my great surprise there are now 6 eggs in the nest and I believe the incubation part has now begun.
I am just happy.
