~Changing of the guard at the Statler~

We knew there were four eggs but today I am wondering if I'm seeing five!


Roger's note:
These photos were taken from the Rand Building, with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35, (not a dslr) which has a 12MP CCD.  At 18X optical plus a tele-converter and dropping to 3MP, the resulting 60X optical is equivalent to a 1,600mm - 35mm camera lens.  The photos were cropped using about 40% of image and contrast and sharpness enhanced by post-editing.   Despite the noise, we were able to see four or possibly five eggs.  The defunct and mothballed building is now accessible only in an emergency.  Will be watching daily now until the eggs hatch so banding time can be determined.
