9 October and will we see a third chick?

Every year that Pot Plant Owl has chosen to nest on our balcony, she has laid 3 eggs, and all 3 have hatched. This year there seems to be a problem.

Whether it is a temporary set-back or not, remains to be seen. In our opinion, the next 24 hours is critical. If the last egg doesn't hatch in this time, we don't believe it will.

On the plus side, Pot Plant Owl and Pappa are doing a wonderful job at looking after their two chicks. The chicks are inquisitive, hungry, and eager to explore, and this makes for fascinating viewing. Best of all, the chicks don't appear to be camera-shy, often popping their heads up from under Pot Plant Owl's feathers.

I can't wait to get to know them.
