May 18th - 19th - One egg hatches some time on May 18th.
Video 2/13 (13 sec) - Short and sweet - no action but interesting.

In the beginning both parents sit on the new sqab. It looks like the mother is not willing to leave the baby unprotected - but eventually she goes to look for food and leaves the baby under the father's supervision.
The father is not as concientious as the mother. The slightest noise sends him flying.
