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.
