Booni your photos are super - many thanks.   :eclove

The videos are not made as yet. My computer was upgraded last week to Windows 7 (which I like) BUT the old Windows Movie Maker went in the process and I have just had to install an new one. So, sometime today, hopefully they will appear    :pray

BBE, let us know how you like the new MM.  You can post your opinion in Tech Help here.  :)

I saw the egg first thing this morning. It may have been laid the night before.

This video clip was recorded around 11:15 AM.  Mom is on the nest and seems to be calling for Dad. Later (not in the video) she calls out more loudly and we hear Dad respond.

beans, I like your video very much  :heart

Finally, here comes the first video.

Recorded this morning at 7:16 a.m.   Duration = 2 secs. over 1 minute  :eclol

Dad Hornby Gently Rolls the Egg

The other two are just over 6 and 7 minutes (and prior to beans' above). So I need to cut and splice or do 2 parts for each.

Thanks to everyone who posted screen caps, videos and comments about this wonderful day!  We Hornby Eagle fans will be right in front of our computer screens, thanks to Doug and Sheila and the efforts of a great group of people who've made it possible.   :heart

Beans, Mom Hornby laid her egg at 7:54 PM last night.  There are 'Hotspots' which help pinpoint the moment.   :ecsmile  Spotted by NancyM (and many others)

Video # 2 trimmed gfrom just over 6 minutes to 03:48.  The part that 'landed on the cutting room floor' was Dad looking around, up and down for Mum.

8:21 a.m.  Dad is looking around for Mum, then he rolls the egg. 'Finally', (Dad's word, not mine)  :eclol  Mum flies in and makes a noisy landing on the cam casing.  You can also hear what I think are crows and also a starling ?

One more needing splicing.

Thank you so much 'beans'. Lovely to read and also on YouTube  :ecsmile  As right now I am whipped. I have just posted about the program now in use (as you requested) on Tech Thread.

Alright folks this is the last of my three recordings from way before lunch. :mhihi

Last video spliced and diced from 7+ mins. to 05:20.  

Dad is on the nest (and Mum up on cam casing), he does a roll and hunkers down again, Then both of them calling loudly. Whether they saw a 'threat' or if it was Dad saying 'About time you came home' and Mum saying 'Thank you dear, but I can take over now' ??

Thanks for waiting.  Quite the learning curve.  :ecrolleyes
