I'm pleasantly surprised how often the male is coming back with another insect for the chicks and mom.

Before, when the female jumped away from the nest, one of the eggs ended up outside the nest :slap: . She tried to move it just a little bit, but not enough to put it back into the nest.
Will that egg die now? :shock:

SadLily that is a good question :puzzled:
If it's time to hatch today maybe it find the way back into the nest, or the female tries again to bring it back :puzzled:
