Shelley 05/20/05 06:37 am Does anyone have easy access to the timeline of when the eggs were laid, thus making it easy for us to know when to expect the hatchings to take place? I am sure I must have asked this already but (grrr...) I forgot to save the answer in a place where I can easily access it, myself. Sorry about that and thanks, if anyone can pull that up

Pam 05/20/05 11:07 am Thanks for that Mickey - I've just printed it out for future reference.
karen 05/20/05 12:14 pm Thanks Mickey and I just learned something new (to me ) that I can print from the message board ... so I have printed this thread and will start a folder of things I want to remember! There is no clear pattern to hatching and fleding but the egg laying is pretty consistent at every 3 days.
Nancy L 05/20/05 01:10 pm Thanks a lot, Mickey -- that took some typing!!
Shelley 05/20/05 05:38 pm Thank you, Mickey. My printer isn't working but I am copying it out anyhow (by hand)

cathy 05/20/05 05:44 pm Do you think it was the same adults in 2003 and 2004 and different adults this year?
Shelley 05/20/05 05:46 pm Duh! Ok, the truth is out now. I am computer-challenged! Um, yes, I just figured out that if I copy and paste Mickey's info into an email to myself, there it is!! I'll be ok, it's Friday and it;s been a really long week!!!

Cecilia 05/20/05 05:54 pm Cathy - we do think that the adults were the same in 2003 and 2004 and that this pair is new and probably first time parents.
Mickey 05/20/05 06:06 pm Oh I never typed that out by hand here.All I did was c/p it from my nest data.doc that I have saved and just add to it as events warrent.
DaveS 05/20/05 06:13 pm Hi Mickey, how would you like to take over as the time-line author this year? Great job, add a few filler words and you have a better one than I have done!.....
Nancy L 05/20/05 06:58 pm He's one organized guy!
Celeste 05/20/05 07:16 pm I second the election of Mickey as the Time-Line Author!
Mickey 05/20/05 07:26 pm Hi Dave. Whether its official or not, I keep it for me.I will gladly post it after the chicks have fledged in August. Or when anyone asks for it again. Its no big deal to do. Its a word doc.
Marie 05/20/05 09:16 pm are a GEM..thank you so much. Saved me a lot of time and some days I don't have much of it
RonS 05/20/05 09:16 pm Shelley,
To print a web page, like this message thread, in Windows, just right click on a blank area of the page. Then select "Print" from the drop-down menu.
Shelley 05/20/05 10:37 pm Thanks, ROn. The original problem was that my printer isn't working at all. I simply forgot about copying/pasting. It is easy, I actually know how to do that but I just forgot.

I am so not technically inclined... ;-p
