22nd May 2010 (Saturday), Kemensah, Selangor.
DAY 7 (from discovering the egg). From what I had read the incubation period is between 18-20 days and about 30 days for the chick to fledge. Still a long way to go!
The morning downpour had left the female soaking wet. Egg still not hatched. I was concerned for the birds and the nest because we had two days of thunderstorms and strong wind. Looks like she’s OK.
The male was nearby on another tree, resting and sometimes making his hunting passes for insects.
