Observation details

One adult was sitting on a nest. I assumed she/he was sitting on eggs. The mate arrived and for the first time I watched the "changing of the guard" and they switched places on the nest. Both of their crests went straight up and looked quite punk. When the one sitting stood up, I saw not eggs but a baby chick.
