The suspense is killing us!

Well, today was the due date. [Actually I thought it was yesterday.] But since we can't see into the nest, we can't be sure when incubation of eggs really began. By most calculations, today would be day 32 of a 28-32 day incubation period. The chicks should hatch today. But, some people say the incubation period is 28-34 days. And maybe PM & Lola hadn't started sitting on eggs when we thought they had. In any event, the suspense is almost palpable. High anticipation and anxiety reigns around here.

I'm off to the hawk bench now. Maybe something will have happened while I'm in the subway. Or maybe nothing...
