Buzzard setting
Story # 100, O. T.


      The buzzards that come to nest in my barn for the third year have one egg this year

      The pair takes turns setting on the egg ---- or at least I think they do ---- the male and female look alike.

      They are truly putting all their eggs in one basket.  The first year, two eggs hatched.  Last year, two eggs ---- one hatched.  This year, only one egg.

      The birds have been setting, non-stop for three weeks.  It has been cold here so I hope the egg has been kept warm enough.

      Time will tell if a chick emerges or they abandon the egg.
