Two Eggs !

Amazement

Ozzie is as high as a satellite.

I’m as smug as a high priest on an unearned sabbatical without a sense of duplicity.

The Doctor has never heard of a 7 day lag time between laying of the first and second egg. Well I guess he learned something today.

“OK, so?”

 

The Doctor catches his breath.

The sun is down. The Doctor can only share with you an infrared image at this time. But he promises to send a live web cam photo as soon as he can.

It is a beautifully clear, cloudless night. The canopy of stars twinkle like positively charged sub atomic particles displaying their flavors, quarks, ups, downs, bottoms, tops, and charms.

Which reminds me. We have been neglectful of our primary mission lately. Sorry it’s been so long, but the joy of being with Ozzie and producing these first two eggs has completely captivated my attention.

This joy; this love; this consciousness is a good place to rekindle our discussion of Saving the World or at least Life on Planet Earth.

The Doctor has promised to start posting the basic elements of our plan as our breeding activities unfold this spring and summer.

Bear with us as the explanation can get a bit confusing. But if you carefully follow our logic, it will be easy to understand.

I hope you all have a nice evening and a grand Easter weekend. Thank you so much for reading. More to come soon.

    Great one! I really enjoyed this one.

  2. Hooray! However, I am concerned about the difference in age of the siblings. Older siblings sometimes try to push the younger ones out of the nest. Let’s pray that does not happen.

    Those are great pictures

    • Thank you for your comment. Comments and feedback to the story are what I live for. However, I cannot take credit for the pictures. As I was surfing the web, my mouse suddenly began behaving as a planchette on an Ouija board. I do not know who or what was guiding it, but it settled on the pictures you see in this post.

  4. Maybe, just maybe, Harriett didn’t start incubating the first egg immediately as the eggs can remain viable for quite awhile before the incubation process begins. Nature definitely has a way of assuring regeneration of the species such as the story of duck eggs that were delivered to a GREYHOUND bus station for a Chinese grocery store. They were COD and when the grocery store didn’t come to get them, the eggs were stored in a warm furnace room. You guessed it…some of them hatched even without the careful temperature control and constant turning that a mother bird provides.

    • Thank you for your very interesting observation. You may be correct. I noticed after the first egg was laid that both parents were not attending to it as much as I thought they would. Then I read,”Incubation can be a bit sporadic until the second egg arrives”.

      I think you are right about this. It will be interesting to see when, and how far apart the eggs hatch.

      Thank you.

  5. I look forward to Osprey Tales so very much. Thanks for taking the time to share the very interesting and informative events with us.
