May 29, 2015. Day 42. I knew when I visited the nest this morning that this was the day we had all been waiting for! The pen was agitated and her posture was much different. She appeared to be listening to the nest and her body was spread out much further than normal. I had to leave but vowed to return later in the morning.
May 20, 2015. It was bitterly cold on the waterfront early this morning. The nest has been built up and the water has receded a bit. There was no sign of the cob and the pen didn't even acknowledge my presence. I'm sure they're both exhausted. I hope the eggs are still viable!
