BET that is the best laugh I've had in days. That also reminds me of the year they brought in a long banner that said "BANFF SPRINGS HOTEL" but JOE BOXER and that bra last year is funnier yet. Can't say life is ever boring at this nest. Rolling on floor laughing

One of the adults is incubating with it's back to the camera and looking out toward the river.

Mom is up to preen.
I did manage to get a good glimpse of the eggs and they are looking fine.

Mom is warning off an intruder. It was another osprey and it tried to land a couple of times but Mom was immediately up and flapping at it. Of course my luck I missed catching it in the screen capture.

1010am

The intruder is still hanging around the nest area. Mom has been craning her neck trying to keep an eye on him. He made a couple of passes close to the nest. Mom had enough and gave chase. She was gone for about 30 seconds but it was enough for the time being, although she continues to sky watch and evidently shrieking as her beak keeps opening wide

The intruder has been hanging around all day. Mom has continued to sky watch. I have not seen Dad all day.

Here the intruder was hanging over the nest- flying in place like Ospreys and humming birds do - arrow points to his shadow. Mom took off straight up - they both were over the nest for a minute or two - could see their shadows on the nest. Then they left. Mom returned back to brooding and sky watching

Dad flew in with a good size fish in talon. As soon as he landed he and Mom both started checking the sky. After about a minute, Dad took off - with the fish
