7:51 pm
The chick on the nest flew off and we have an empty nest again.

Did someone find a free meal somewhere ??? I have a vision of our missing chick perched on a branch eating a stolen fish and the other two have gone to beg for it.

7:54 pm
One chick arrives.

He's gone again.

This has been one of the most active evening these chicks have had. Lots of flying to strengthen their wings.

Activity - chaotic activity - and now there's none! You all have been wanting them to graduate to the sand bar, or ? to work on their individual survival skills. That empty nest looks like they heard you.

Where or where have our little chicks gone?

Where the heck are the other two ??

8:12 pm
Second chick arrives and he fights for the fish. I didn't see whether or not he managed to steal it but I don't think he did.

One chick is still unaccounted for and has been gone since 7:02 p.m.

8:11pm..........When I first logged on the nest was empty. i went back to read the posts and when I returned I found Mom and 1 chick in the nest with a huge fish! The chick is mantling the fish and looking around nervously as if he can't believe he has this whole thing to himself!!

8:15pm.....Hi Judy! I missed the fly in by the 2nd chick. So 2 chicks are here now with Mom. The first one is protecting his stash and making it very clear that he/she is not sharing.

Now wouldn't that be justice. Dad fed the extra mouth last year - the up/down river Dad feeding our chicks a few fish would be a good deed returned.

Mom and the two chicks are fighting to keep their balance in the wind.
The chick with the fish is working on his meal
Third chick still missing.

I find it very odd that the third chick hasn't arrived home when there is food on the nest. I wonder if it's possible he has a fish elsewhere ?

Mom is still on the nest.

There is a black animal walking in the water along the shore. Can't tell whether it's a dog or ??
