4/21, Just Say When

It's been 34 days since Isolde took to her nest at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and it seemed like egg brooding had started. This suggests that an egg should already have hatched, but so far no one has reported seeing feeding activity, the only evidence that we'll get of nestlings until they're old enough to peek out of the nest.

Early this evening I caught a switch-off at the nest, as Isolde returned from a dinner and/or recreational break and Norman exited from temporary nest duty. Both before and after, the adult in the nest was hunkered down and out of sight.
