Two home now -- Dad up front, Mom on the back edge. Note the amount - or I should say - lack of amount of dark chest feathers

Mom was standing on the back nest rim when Dad came flying up from the river. He circled the box on the right and landed with a fish in talon. Mom made a quick move towards Dad to get the fish. Uh Uh - Dad is not ready to wait on her, he took off leaving Mom standing mid nest

As I type this - he lands again with another fish. This time he gives it to Mom (Image to follow)

After Dad left Mom stayed in the middle of the nest - chittering away - no sound, but her beak looked like it was on vibrate it was opening and closing so rapidly. Dad returned, bringing a new fish which he let her take from his talon.

He left. She has flown off now too.

SUNDAY, APRIL 17TH

7:25 pm
I checked the camera early this morning and it wasn't available at the time. It is up now but there's not an osprey insight.
I have noticed that there are more branches in the nest so they have obviously been working on it today.

I don't know when the cam came back up, but discovered it at dinner time. No O's in sight. Put the cam full screen and settled in to watch the NBA playoffs. Glanced over at the computer to see Dad mating with Mom. Darn, I could not get to the comp in time. Dad flew off but Mom stayed on the nest for a couple of minutes. The setting sun turning her feathers into a shimmering glowing mahogany.

Cam is up now!

Both O's on the nest facing forward. I wasn't sure who was who until Dad mounted Mom - no mating - and then flew off. Mom is on the left. They are about the same physical size, head and face markings identical. If you look closely, you can see a Mom has some dark feathers across her chest. But sometimes when the light is right - or would that be wrong? - those dark feathers don't show up.

There are bunch more sticks in the nest this am then JKR's image last night. So progress being made on that front.

Dad has been busy, lots more sticks. I haven't seen Mom bring in any, but my computer has been acting up a lot today so have missed a lot of activity. Twice I have seen Mom standing in mid- nest and Dad bring her a fish. Image below is her taking the latest offering. As soon as she had it in talon, she flew off to eat it elsewhere

Earlier this am there was an intruder on the nest - briefly. I assume it was an intruder as it looked up skywards, and immediately took off. It was no sooner off the nest than Mom landed followed by Dad. Both set up defensive postures.
