The pair is doing a fantastic job protecting their first egg from the thunder and lightening storms that have been passing through the Lowcountry. The female has been tucking her head inward protecting the egg and most likely herself from the pelting rain. The warm temperatures that we've been enjoying for a few weeks now have fallen about 15 to 20 degrees and do not appear to go back into the 70's until the weekend. We'll go through the names we've received so far and try to pick names this week. We still have the first egg at this time.

I have a question .. the weather situation over the last 36plus hours has been tough for the new pair, has it ever happened that it could affect arrival of a second egg?

To be honest DB, I do not know. In 2008 our pair laid eggs, but they never hatched, possibly due to the cold weather and the pair left the eggs unattended.

I'll look around and see what I can find. Maybe some of our other bloggers can help us with an answer.
