Then There Were Three!

Welcome to beautiful Utah, where winter has lasted forever! Seriously, snow at the end of May? This was the view from my backyard this morning. This cold makes me worry for the new hatchlings. 2008 brought disaster to the nest when all the eyases died. The temps went from 95 to 30 degrees in a 24 hr period, and although Bob Walters didn't feel that was the cause, it still makes me worry.

Great news! Three of the eggs hatched this weekend ~ Saturday morning around 9:30, Sunday morning and another Sunday afternoon. I no longer see a 4th egg. Sorry for the poor captures. Still haven't found a program to get good pics from the video stream.

I see three heads in this shot!

There are now four eggs in the nest, which is a normal clutch size. The two parents are sharing the care and incubation responsibilities.Watching Camera 2 will give you a better chance of seeing the parents and the four eggs.
