Both on the nest this morning.

Both still there. Both have been standing looking out and occasionally reposition a stick or two.

7:39 a.m.
No change. It's been a lazy time at the nest but from looking at all the work they have done the past couple of days I don't blame them for taking a well deserved break.

Dad decided to fly off to the right of the nest and Mom stands watch.

Dad continues to bring in sticks

At 8:45am he arrived with one of those weird forked sticks

Poor Mom - she did have to struggle to get out from under it.

Later - about 9:50am Dad brought in a big wad of dried grass

This grass clump had a piece of paper stuck to it and it - the paper - is blowing about a bit in the nest.

The geese continue to play territory games down on the river. The one pair seem to have picked the scrub area half way between the visible area to the right of the nest and the far edge. The other pair seem to be just a bit upstream. I wish we could zoom in on their chasing each other antics.

We will probably have to wait until tomorrow morning when Enmax opens unless someone is running the encoder from a different location.

8:55pm

An EnMax IT person saw my email about the cam and got it back up - One home on the nest at this time Not sure which as I do not have a clear view of the chest.

Look at the amount of sticks that are now encircling the outer rim of the nest. It's beginning to look like a bowl

Too Funny, BET! I also emailed Enmax and just received a reply saying the camera was back. I did a s'cap and even though it is almost exactly like yours, I am going to post it anyway.

Hi Judy,

I drove by the Lafarge plant and saw the eagle's nest but it looks to be empty. There is also an osprey nesting site not too far from there and still nothing there.

At the other LaFarge plant at Southland and Deerfoot, the Osprey usually nest on some equipment in the middle of the plant and nothing there. A few years ago LaFarge and Alberta Fish and Wildlife put up a pole by the river and it is empty too!

I don't know where my other Ospreys are this year.

HI! lilly

So glad you posted your image. It looks like it might be Mom perched there. Your image shows more chest.

The news about no Ospreys in the other nests is most concerning. I hope the weather has delayed them and not caused them harm. This late spring heavy storms is causing untold damage. The east coast is being inundated today. The eagles at Norfolk VA looked like the proverbial "drowned rats" I do hate even using the word rat in conjunction with eagles - but it's the only expression that comes to mind at the moment.

I was about to shut the computer down for the night and decided to check and see if our lady was spending the night in the nest. She's not - but I thought the image with the infrared light reflecting off the light sticks was rather lovely
