It's nice to see the nest dry today after all the rain they had over the past couple of days.
Mom has been on the nest since I turned on the camera. No sign of Dad yet.

Here's a comparison of the river over the past 4 days. There is still tons of snow to come down off the mountains so we're likely to see the level higher and higher each day over the next couple of weeks.

Dad arrived, moved a small stick near Mom. Mom then got up, flew off, and Dad took over incubating.

For the last hour or so, Dad has been on the nest off and on. Fidgety could best describe it. He has been watching the sky off over the river. At 10:57, both he and Mom were carefully watching and tracking something in the sky.

Suddenly Dad took off and Mom right on his tail feathers

They were gone about one minute

Mom came flying back in with Dad in hot pursuit

Mom landed and Dad landed on her back

He looked towards the river as if to say MINE and took off again. Mom returned to incubating the eggs.

I really think watching incubation of eggs is like watching paint dry. But hurrah, a bit of action Clapping

Dad brought home a KOI!!! Tiny one Maybe I should call it a goldfish!Grin

Mom did not mind the size at all. She got up from the eggs and wasted no time getting the Koi from Dad's talons and taking off with it to eat elsewhere

She was back in about two minutes. She stood around the back nest rim as Dad did not seem to want to give up his comfortable spot. After about 5 minutes he relinquished the egg sitting back to Mom

Camera color is really poor. Maybe has something to do with it being down yesterday. Hope they fix it tomorrow.

Mom is on the rim of the nest eating. She then stretched her wings then headed over to Dad who is incubating.

Mom gave Dad a nudge to get him off the eggs. He obliges and flies off as Mom settles onto the eggs.
