There were three eggs, but only one has been seen since June 8; not sure what happened to the others, but there was some major rain around that time, and the parents may have left them untended - or may have buried them out of sight.

Both adults are on the nest this morning - and they do seem interested in the remaining egg.

Friends of Blackwater is announcing a hatch! They provided a link to a video from about 1:28 pm showing the chick moving a bit in the nest cup area, not long after my s'caps - http://youtu.be/eLUF60vkjQg

These are from 6:07 - 6:10 pm, and I'm not sure if the new little one was fed - but I think they were trying:

I think they may be a new pair - or at least a new Mom - it looked as if the adult doing the feeding left the fish at the back of the nest and eventually brought a couple of pieces over to the little one - but I think the little one did get a chance to try a little fish if he or she was ready.

We don't know which egg this is - today is day 39 for the first egg and day 36 for the second egg.

I'm noticing that both adults are spending time on the nest - not sure if that's usual for this pair, but it is nice to see them together.

Sad News - this was posted on the cam page:

Nest Update

06/21/13:
Our sole chick didn't make it. We know our parents are inexperienced, but it might also have been the chick's health. He never looked terribly active in sitting up and moving around, so it's possible he had underlying health issues. It's too late for a 2nd clutch, so we'll have to hope for a better season next year.


Rest in peace, little one. sad
