Around here walnut trees are about the only ones to get the white paint treatment.

I don't watch the Hanover Iggles as much as I did last year, but I keep up on the Facebook page.

The female laid one good egg, and then, a few days later, an egg with no shell. Birbologists say it happens often. They caught her laying it on video, and basically, she ate it, as soon as she saw it wasn't a good egg. This instinct removes it from the nest, and keeps the good egg in dry, bacteria-free condition.

You don't see much of the non-egg before it's gone.



Now, recently, they have had a juvenile bald eagle invading the nest. There's no sound in this video, which is a shame because the female is sounding the alarm. The intruder arrives and she has to kick him off.



The same birb (probably) is visiting the nest at night, and just standing next to it for an hour, without walking onto the nest itself. DRAMA

Yeah, that is a possibility! Although the birbologists think it is too old to be one of last year's younguns, there's a chance it's a youngun from a previous year.

Ma, don't cha recognize me??

Hanover nest has gone the way of all of 2020 -- their remaining egg has not hatched yet, which means it's bad.

Apparently the birds may not understand this, and will continue to incubate for another 2-4 weeks, unless the shell cracks on its own.

That will be unbelievably stinky when it pops.
