I was under the impression that Bush S-curlews started sitting as soon as the first egg was laid. this leads to differential hatching. I have witnessed it a couple of times. Today I received this from a friend and would appreciate comments from the learned people of birding-aus. " K. says there were 2 eggs on Sat morning, & at 4 pm, there were 2 chicks. She can see their nest through her kitchen window, so can observe them without scaring them. Beaut experience, watching the parents swap over the sitting job, etc."
