I think someone might be coming out because both mom and dad were up there, with dad sitting on the nest. He keeps looking down into the nest. As I'm posting this, he's still sitting up there and the mother bird is off doing something. Probably getting herself some food or a drink. It's pretty hot here today.
Dad sitting on the nest looking down. See mom, she's the grayer one. This is what is happening right now. We think an egg is hatching. Tonight I will try to get up there to get a picture if they leave to take a break. If not, it will have to wait until tomorrow.
Dad is committed to sitting on the nest right now. He won't fly off when I go out there on the porch which is unusual. What is also very unusual is that he is sitting on the nest at all.
These three pictures are of one of the babies from the first batch of her eggs, of which two birds survived.
The dad from yesterday.
The walls are going to get wainscot beadboard trim throughout the kitchen.
Mike cracks me up!
Garbage drawer which will hold two bins, one in front of the other. Next to that a band of drawers and then the dishwasher, sink and finally to the far right of the window is another bank of drawers which will be much larger.
Then in the middle of the room we're putting in a cooktop island.
Finally looking at the wall which will hold the refrigerator:
To the left is a set of double ovens, the frig and finally my bake pastry table and hanging cabinet.
