This was also our first view of a beak moving in the pip hole, although there would be clearer pictures later on.

But, to begin at the beginning of the day,
very early on the starlings started being quite obnoxious. Ezra walked over to the starling pipe and looked in....

As mentioned earlier, we got our first view of the pipped and cratered eggs at 8:23 AM. It is not possible here to show everyone's photos of the day, especially duplicates, but many thanks to everyone who takes screenshots and videos. Please visit the Photostreams page to see individual photo account links. And if you are on Flickr, don't forget to add your photos to the Cornell Bird Cams pool.
