Lovely sunset - Mom (I think) is moving a piece of paper to the edge of the nest

Mom (I think) is spending more time on the nest in the evening hours now, although I have not seen either spending the night yet. Today I saw for the first time since they began the nest build, use their chest to grind out a hollow in the nest bowl.

Thank you JKR - Wish you had more time to view the pair.

Mom and Dad have had a few pseudo matings this am. Since I can't see the surrounding air space, from their behavior, I think there was another Osprey in the area and Dad was demonstrating his claim on Mom and the nest. Mom at one time seem to be threatening another bird in the area.

Dad brought in a bit of grass and then did a "carve out the nest bowl" while Mom stood by

It's been what one could call a routine day at the nest. (EnMax is limiting log on time so there have been hours that I couldn't watch) When I was able to watch, there was a lot of new stick arranging and at least one mating. Both O's on the nest at the same time. Sometime after the noon hour the image turned dark and now at 5:30, it looks like 9:00pm.

Dad brought in a fish, let Mom take it from him. Once she secured it in her talons. she took off to eat elsewhere

I have not been able to watch most of today, but when I have - Mom has been lying - not standing - in the nest bowl. The prelude to eggs? She is a bit spread out in this image at 5:55pm today
