Nest Update April 13, 2013 - Hatchwatch Day 35

Good Evening, Fellow Pippletoonians!

OK, whose eyes are sore from trying to see a pip today??? (Raises hand) I am sure there is a lot of Visine being used tonight as we all rest our eyes from staring at our monitors. Things were hopping in the Social Stream today and we opened Chat to take some of the overload. A good day was had by all in both rooms today. The mods fingers are sore from answering all the questions that come from being on PipWatch. Many egg closeups were snapped and all were checked for any sign of a pip. Alas, not one was to be found. Well, tomorrow is another day. We are on the eagles time now and when it happens we will all rejoice.

Dad was the star again of the only video we have today. He showed off some of his perches to the crowd and did some tidying of the nest. He got up on his throne perch and surveyed his kingdom. It’s good to be the top predator! At the end he flies off to Sticks Depot to see if his special order came in.

MNBound Eagles Dad Knows It's Pip Watch

As I said earlier egg screencaps abounded. I’ll just post a few here.

Hmmm No pip here.

Nor here.

Nor here. 

Not here either! Oh Well!

And a pic of Mom from early this morning. Think she knows we are watching???

We had a few teachers stop by today. They all said their classes loved to watch the nest with us. We offered to set them up with a time so that they could have us answer questions for them directly. They were very enthusiastic about the chance to do this. We love to have classes visit the nest. 

Teachers: If you are a teacher and want to schedule time with us for some personal interaction on the nest please email us at:  with your request and your contact details and we will get back to you ASAP. We love to have classes visit and we will make time for yours to have some up closeup time with the eagles. The hatch is happening and it will get busy these next few weeks so schedule your time now. You can even make it a weekly thing if you want to so you and your students can have an ongoing lesson on eagles.

All in all, it was a good day to PipWatch. We had fun and will have some more tomorrow as we wait on eagle time to catch up with us. 

Hope you had a great day on the nest and we will see you there tomorrow!
