I accidently had this image when I printed the screen. It shows the difference in size and length of the parents in the nest. Note the two rail sticks by their tails. (click twice for a good look)

6:30 It is sunny and the nest has light snow on it. Parent is quietly incubating.

9:17 Parent is up checking the eggs and cheeping. Does an egg roll and then settles rocking side to side a bit.
