Final Tally – Four Eggs

Wow!  It took a healthy dose of patience and persistence to finally ascertain a good look at the clutch and determine that it is complete at 4 eggs.   The birds seem to have been on the eggs without a break, no doubt this is partially due to the cold weather and the need to keep the eggs from getting cold.   So there you have it, if everything goes as expected, we should see hatching occur in mid-May.
