7:40 a.m.
Mom was alone on the nest. Dad popped in for only a moment then went flying off across the river.

I have to say this nest is looking well constructed from what it was a few days ago.

7:50 a.m.
Mom has now flown off.

8:22 a.m.
As I was watching a Delta2 feeding I glimpsed over to the osprey cam and saw Dad arrive for a mating with Mom and then he flew off after a moment or two. Of course I missed getting any kind of screen capture.

11:40am

All morning since I have been watching, both have been adding new sticks and rearranging the ones already on the nest - making the nest center wider and more bowl shaped. I have not seen any new grasses added this am. I did see Dad give Mom "a hug" if you can call it that. He mounted her - no attempt at mating - before he flew off to wherever.

Both had been on the nest doing interior decorating when they walked over to the river side and just seemed to be admiring the view from their front porch.

Mom just standing in the nest when Dad flies in from the river with fish in toe!

She wasted no time going after the fish - almost upended her self getting to it

A bit of a struggle to get it off of Dad's talons

As soon as she had it free, she flew off - up towards the cam housing

Re: Cam down

EnMax IT dept. has tracked down the the source of the issue, but still not sure how long it will take to resolve it.

I hope soon. I will be gone most of the middle of the day so won't be able to make any updates. I do know that our female did not spend the night in the nest. ( My puppy got me up at 5:00 am nest time and the cam was up then)

I am back. Have been watching while I put things away. Mom was on the nest when I got home. Dad flew in shortly thereafter with a batch of grass. Both went on sky watch. The two were mirror images of each other as they followed the flight path of ?

The space invader must have gotten a little too close as Dad went on guard duty.

About 420 Dad flew off after the whoever.

How do you all like out time date bar? It sure makes keeping track of screen caps a lot easuer. Not only for immediate reference, but looking back a week, a month or previous year. I think I might like it on the bottom better. But I am happy to have it.

Hi BET,

Thank you for the updates and the s'caps. The camera has been down for me all day and it is still down. Is it still up for you?

I love the date and time at the top of the screen. How did you do that?

Thanks,
Christine
