Faith and Ty are doing fine and their eggs look great.  Faith seems to prefer Ty take the morning shift, she takes the afternoon, he comes in for a short period in the late evening and she takes the majority of the overnight.

From this morning - Faith leaving the eggs at shift change - it was about 0830h and that may have been the last sun we see today ...

Its Faith's first nest so can only go with the average - in which case, the week after next, probably starting after May 29th.

Faith this morning - just a few minutes before Ty came in to replace her.
Wet mama, dry eggs.

These two look to be doing very well, eggs and nestbox look great, they are sharing incubation though Faith is definitely the primary incubator she doesn't seem to have any problem passing the torch.  And they are pretty consistent and have been from early on - he does more in the morning, she does most the rest of the day and overnight.  Smooth transfers, very fast unless it is more than a little warm or the sun is shining on them.  I only know there has been a transfer when I'm checking the recording when the size of the bird changes (dramatically) from one tick to another (each tick is a minute long).  Think start of hatching is still 2-4 days away but every pair is different and Faith is larger and these eggs have been very tightly covered since the start - if either of those has any bearing, it could change the timeline.  Can't say if I see a pip or anything on the eggs, mostly just don't get to see them for long.  Will be keeping an eye on them however over the weekend just in case they want into the world sooner than we anticipate.

We have our first hatch (or hatches) for Ty and Faith!!

Last night could see 4 eggs at just past 1900h.  Then the rain started and Faith has been velcroed to the eggs since then (yes that is 16 hours now).  I started checking the recordings frame by frame this morning when there was enough light to see the birds (it was still raining) and couldn't see anything until Faith pulled out an eggshell, nibbled on it for a few seconds then stuffed it back under her.  It is now 4 hours later and she has played with the same or other eggshells for seconds at a time before stuffing them back under her.  Her nestbox looks exactly the same as it did yesterday, a week ago, three weeks ago - pristine with nary any sign of eggs hatching or chicks.  She's not getting off until she's convinced that the chick won't get wet so will keep an eye out for first feeding and then maybe I'll be able to get a chick count - or maybe not, don't know where she'll stand to feed the tots (back to camera or not).

It is nice that tomorrow is going to be dry, sunny and warm - get the who crew hatched and through their first meals.  Friday is suppose to be rainy again and then we have (if the forecast is correct) about 10 day with low/no probability of rain.  Hope they are right - both for West Winnipeg and the McKenzie Seeds chicks which are due next week.

More news as I have it ...

Great news for this nest. Ty and Faith appear to be a good match. I do however miss Beatrix. Happy this nest will continue to provide us with eggs/chicks for years to come.  ;D

Faith looks to be doing very well as a new mom!

Congratulations Ty and Faith, and welcome to the big world, little one.  :-*
