Live stream notes

At the moment we’re watching our mama black-crested titmouse on her nest. She began incubating her 6 eggs on March 26th, and 5 chicks hatched on Thursday April 8th. There’s still one egg in the nest, but at this stage it seems unlikely that it will hatch.

Both parents are feeding the chicks. We have a plague of web-worms at the moment – gazillions of them abseiling down from every tree limb and all around the eaves of the house. It’s an easy job for the parents to find food for their little ones (and for themselves).
