I think this is still Mom on the nest. I've had the camera on for over an hour and still no sign of Dad. Puzzled I find it very odd that he hasn't made an appearance. And I always worry about them with all those hydro lines so close by.
Mom was up to roll the eggs a few minutes ago..... her breast "necklace" was very visible at one point making her easy to ID.

Mom is still incubating the eggs. No sign of Dad.

Mom is tired of waiting for Dad. She gets up for a stretch and flies off. Within a minute she returns --- I'm pretty sure it's her again but I haven't been able to see her chest markings to make a positive ID.

I wish their head markings didn't look so much alike so that we could identify them easier instead of waiting to see the breast markings.

Out out to work.

Mom was incubating - still - finally stood up and backed away from the eggs. She stood on the nest rim for 2 minutes looking all about. I could see nothing but some Canadas flying around at river level. She must have seen something as she took off

He had a minute of two trying to get his feet around the eggs instead of on them. Clutsy Dad Green LOL

He is now comfortably settled on the eggs

First I have seen for awhile - Dad bringing Mom a good size fish. She wasted no time taking it and flying off to eat it else where

BET, thank you, thank you, for being here to capture Dad home yesterday. That is a sigh of relief after him being AWOL for hours.

Parent in the bowl is laying quite low at times keeping out of the wind. Not sure at this point if it's Mom or Dad.
There is a large piece of either black plastic or cloth on the nest and it looks as if the adult could be laying on part of it. I hope it's not covering the eggs the same as what we went through last year.

Camera was down for the entire day. I did send an email to Enmax this morning but they obviously aren't open on the weekends. We may be without a camera until Monday. Sad
