Yesterday morning when I wrote about Morela incubating alone I said she would eventually stop. Little did I know that she already had.
In yesterday’s Day-in-a-Minute video she’s away from the nest most of the day, then perches nearby when present. She’s certainly not incubating.
Morela will eventually stop visiting the nest. So ends the nesting season.
The eggs will remain until it’s time for us humans to perform nest and camera maintenance next December or January.
