8:13 a.m.
Two (possibly osprey) landed on the opposite side of the sandbar and one was flying the opposite direction. The camera is a bit too zoomed out to confirm them as osprey --- could also have been crows or grebes.

9:00 a.m.
No activity to report.

Still no sign of anyone. A bit chilly today and the car had a heavy dew on it. Maybe the Ospreys don't like the cold mornings.

Good morning lilywriterwave

It's not looking too promising that we'll see the family today.

wave Morning to you all. I have the cam up full screen now and not even a gull or a magpie to be seen. Just a gorgeous river flowing quietly by.

What will this day bring? With no sign of the Alvin last night or Dad delivering a fish, - well that image I caught of Al flying off may have been prophetic.

A week ago today, the nest was overflowing with the entire family at home at least once during the day plus two or three extras -

Just saw one osprey glide out from under the nest area and headed up river. There are also crows flying around.

ETA: Good morning BET wave
did you happen to be recording at this time ? I hope I wasn't imagining things.

Out I will be out for most of the day.

10:28am MDT

It's pretty quiet when the most exciting thing I have seen is a shadow fly over the nest

The nest - it's shadow at this minute

The nest - bird overhead - is it an O's shadow? It's big enough and I don't think the water birds - gulls, grebes etc fly over this way.

Reference JKR 10:13 spotting of O

Reviewing my video -

10:13 am MDT This image the bird flew parallel to the fence. I didn't think it was an O, but spotted white/light tail color a couple of times
Click on image to download

30 seconds later This image is most definitely and O - out from under the nest view and flying right up the center of the river
