No PIP seen on the egg, but we couldn't see the other side of it. Pips always show on the larger end of the eggs.

Good look at the bowl and how deep it is. 6/8 inches from where Harriet is standing.

Still haven't seen a PIP on the other egg. E14 is now 3 days ahead. Little bugger best get to cracking that egg and hatch.
 
M lands with some nesting material and suddenly both are on high alert/very vocal.

Harriet is up and out of the nest quickly.

A look from cam 2 shows a juvie flying very close to the nest.

Harriet goes on the defense, while M stays in the nest and covers E14 and egger.

Team work at it's finest.
 
Maybe a PIP?

Looks like a raised bit of egg shell to me.
Waiting for an official confirmation from folks behind the scene.
Come on little baby, show yourself.
:)
 
E14 is now 8 days old and cute as can be. Egg #2 as of yesterday was past the timeline for a hatch and has been officially labeled non-viable. This is only the second time Harriet has had an egg not hatch since the cameras first went up in 2001.
Looks like we'll have one spoiled baby and many hissy fits to come, lol.

Little feets. Getting steadier by the day and will be scooting around the nest soon.

Harriett sits on top of the crib rails as the sun rises past the nest tree. See her?

Now that the bowl has been breached, we can finally see E14 through the tower of crib rails that M built.

H and M playing tug o fish, as E watches them. Since there's only one babe, the parents will play the roll of siblings and show little bit how it's done. When he's their size, they will have some serious throw downs with him over food. Everything H and M do, is a lesson he'll need to survive on his own. Playing tug o food, will teach him how to steal, mantle to show dominance and patience. They won't always let him win.
Fun times are coming, lol.
