When You're an Egg, The View is Always the Same

Yesterday, Mary Ann looked a bit "peak-ed" to me. Sutcliffe stood next to the entrance hole of the nest box most of the day, and she was quite near the front. Notably, it was a bit colder. Today, however, the furnace has really kicked up, and when I put greens out (watercress and dill weed) both parents were very pleased! Mary ann otherwise has been sitting on the eggs constantly. The world, if you are one of her eggs, is largely yellow, warm, and soft. Doesn't sound too bad!

Mary Ann is the most beautiful yellow, that sitting beneath her as an egg must be like basking under the sun.

I am glad that she is dutiful as a mother, and I hope she has some luck this go around.

thanks for the comment! i think she is a great mom too. i would love to be kept warm in that soft, yellow down. and it helps that she takes all her poops outside, of course.
