Tick-tock, Tick-tock, Tick-tock....

So....the second week of incubation is looking a lot like the first week did: Scout on eggs...Trooper on eggs...Scout on eggs sleeping...eggs alone...Trooper on eggs...Scout standing over eggs...Trooper on eggs sleeping...and so on and so on. While it may not be the most exciting thing to watch, it is good that incubation is so mundane--because it implies everything is progressing normally.

There was a brief interesting moment yesterday when 2 pigeons landed on the nest ledge just outside of where Scout was incubating. Scout didn't seem to mind and did not leave her post.I was trying to capture video at the moment but wasn't quick enough. Thanks to a dedicated fan for these saved still images.

In the coming days I will attempt to save and post images of the two adults in incubating position as a comparison to help viewers better tell Scout from Trooper and vice versa.
