And then there were 2

I promised an update on the nest to the girls who were here last weekend, so have been across this afternoon, to return the washed sheets and towels, and to check out any progress. I was worried that mother bird might have decided to move on after she had been disturbed last weekend. But she has had peace all week, and today we have 2 eggs.

Mother was getting a bit agitated, while I was near by.

But, after I had watered some plants, and came back past, she was sitting back on the nest again.

I will keep you updated with any further developments. I don't know how many eggs they usually lay, or how long they take to hatch, so it's an education for me too.

Great, 2 eggs, but I don't know how many they might lay either, although we have plenty of the New Holland Honeyeaters here as well.
