However, we did catch some interesting footage of her yesterday. It's not ALL about sitting on the nest.
For example, I notice that she's always very alert while on the nest and is almost always looking around. What is she looking at, I wonder to myself. I got a good idea yesterday. Watch as she tracks a bug.
And here, a would=be meal flies right past her...
In this one, follow her as she leaves the nest and hovers in toward the window on the trail of a bug.
This one shows an incredibly extended bout of hovering. I was really amazed when I saw this. She looks like an overgrown hummingbird!
Last but not least I'll share with you how she sometimes brings her meal with her and finishes it at the nest.
I hope you enjoyed these little peeks into a day in the life of our incubating mama Phoebe. It will still be a while before any eggs hatch. The Cornell site says incubation time is about 16 days, but it's only been 7 days by my calculations. I'll keep you all posted with any mini-updates over in the sidebar.
