1. Update: 3:30 pm
This is getting amusing. After the egg was laid, one of the babies from the last clutch is trying to take over the nest. First she sat on the nest and got pushed off by the mom. And then she wouldn't allow her mom to sit on the nest to incubate the new egg.

6. Funny thing is, this is really a new nest
Reminds me of that Rodney Dangerfield joke, "When I was a kid my parents moved a lot. But I always found them."

"Deadbeat bird kids and the parents who are trying to get them out of the nest ... On the next Dr. Phil."
