Good morning! :wave:

Yes! Loud and clear egg talk!
The little one sounds indeed like a little frog :mrgreen:
Kwack. Kwack. Or maybe like a little duck?

It's difficult to see if there is already a crack, the nest bowl is deep and a branch is hiding part of the view. :slap:

12:15 Yes, Karl, we heard it too!
Image


12:31 Kati arrived, Karl leaves
12:38 The chick has a lot to say

12:38 I saw a big crack. The chick is almost there!!!
Image

12:45 :thumbs:
Image

12:59 thunder!
13:01 almost 2 separate egg parts!

13:25 the egg is completely broken into small pieces

13:44-45 Kati turns the eggs, also the hatching one

13:57 Very loud claps of thunder, the storm must be very closeby :shock:
It is pouring. :slap:

14:10 - 35 The weather is still awful. Kati is getting soaked.

Yes, it has been dry weather for a long time. :nod:

I hope the hatchling is staying dry and warm under Kati...
14:40 I heard it talking a little... 8-)

14:47 I believe this is the little head. Or something else sticking out. :laugh:

Sorry for the silly question, but what is the part between the beak and the eye that's swelling as she breathes? I've been following this camera for three years now, but I don't remember seeing that before. Even Google couldn't help me. :unsure:

Hello, Lisbeth,
I see it too now... I do not know what it is. A vein? Airflow? :puzzled:
Someone, please? :help:

15:06 The thunderstorm isn't over yet.
15:38:30 The hatchling is chirping again. It quacks. It is still not completely out of the egg.
15:51:15 A little help from Kati? She 'shakes' the egg a little.

comparable to sinus passages in humans??. The trachea in birds is much larger, breathing has a different principle.

16:11:56 Karl came home

16:12:32 Kati leaves
Karl cleans the nest bowl. The chick moves a lot. It is partly out of the shell, I think.

16:20-21 The chick is almost completely out of the egg!

Karl is sneezing(?) a lot.
