Sitting, relaxing, although with a heightened alert for danger, incubating, waiting, is exciting, satisfying, fulfilling.   There is a lot of peace and relaxation associated with a brood.  But do not get fooled.  Remember this is nature and as we have found before, nature can be cruel and unforgiving.

I sit while Jonathan patrols our area for threats.  The Doctor says my head looks as if it is a cog wheel or the second hand of an old watch.  When I get hungry Jonathan takes over the incubation to allow me to get a meal.  I’ll tell you later what great fisher-birds we are; I must say, we are quite incredible, now I must call Jonathon as I am getting hungry.
