Well, heck, we seem to have another missing-in-action dad. From what I understand, he was initially around and sharing incubation duties, but for the past week or so, has not been around much and when he does arrive, he has been known to stand and stare at the eggs, rather than incubate. Mom has had to leave the nest for extended periods of time, presumably to eat. No one seems to know what might have caused the behavior change in Dad. What is it with the guys this year? New dads? Busier protecting nests? Very different and interesting, as well as hard to watch, (thus the Watch Caution).
