Hatches 2010

Messaggio da Warbler » gio apr 15, 2010 7:38 am

Here's a summary of hatching so far, in chronological order for each pair:

Rome Nests
Appio and Vergine: 3 chicks hatched on 5 April and 1 on 10 April

Aria and Vento: 2 chicks hatched on 13 April and one on 15 April. One egg has not yet hatched.

Alice and Virgilio: 2 chicks hatched on 15 April; one egg still to hatch.

Aloha and Falcao: 2 chicks hatched on 13 and 14 April. The cam has blocked overnight so we don't know if any more have arrived for the moment.

Florence
Giotto and Monna Tessa: At least one chick has hatched overnight.

Bologna
Diana and Rex: This pair didn't lay eggs until later and so the chicks are expected to hatch around 28 April.

Photos can be found in 'Album fotografico' inside each topic.

Giac, our expert, says that new pairs usually lay only three eggs and sometimes the first year isn't successful at all. The pair in Bologna is completely new and there are only three eggs. We just have to wait and see if they hatch. Alice and Virgilio may also be a new pair; the female is certainly different from the pair that nested here a couple of years ago.

Here's a late update on the day:

Rome
Alice and Virgilio's third chick hatched in the late afternoon so their brood is now complete.

The cam on Aloha and Falcoa came back on line this evening but it was too dark to see if other chicks had hatched. We'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Aria and Vento have one more egg left. Will it hatch?

Florence
Monna Tessa was very uneasy this afternoon. Could she hear the other two chicks starting to hatch? We'll find out in the morning.

The last egg of Aria and Vento has hatched in the last hour so they now have a brood of four chicks.

As there are problems with the cam, we still don't know how many chicks Aloha and Falcao have.

In Florence, I think that another chick may have hatched but I'm not sure.

As soon as I have confirmation of the number of new chicks I'll post again.

Correction. We all thought that Aria and Vento's last egg had hatched but it hasn't.
To recap:

4 chicks for Appio and Vergine
3 each for Aria and Vento, Alice and Virgilio, and Giotto and Monna Tessa in Florence
2 chicks for Aloha and Falcao

Diana and Rex's chicks should hatch around 28 April.
