Almost there ! Are you sure there's only one chick ? Is that normal for these birds ?

According to the gardener who took a peek into the nest, there were two eggs, but one didn't hatched, probably because the mother left the nest too early for unknown reason. Sometimes this happens...But I'm thankful that there is at least one.

A Happy Conclusion. Passed by the nest today afternoon. The chick has left the nest. Kudos to the persevering parents for a job well done.

Here's the last shot taken just the day before.
