The chick that keeps flying off and returning has flown off again for the third consecutive time.
One meanders at center nest and the one with the fish finally decides to eat.

9:12 am
The second chick flies off leaving the lone chick to his meal.

9:50am

I was watching from a distance - trying to get a few house chores done - when I decided the cam was frozen. When I went to reload, I noted the river was flowing - the chicks were just frozen. The storm has hit. Perhaps they are recalling the last big storm

Good Morning, JudyB, Christine, Donna, Gerard, Judy and BET, wave

Great coverage on this soggy morning, glad to see my rain barrel filling up again. Smile

9:40 am Not much happening at the moment. The chick moved from 3 to 6 along the edge of the nest and just flew off. One is still at 12 on the fish and sibling is at 11.

They looked like well-stuffed grouse this morning and seem as active as same. It is still a chilly 7-9C in Calgary.

9:44 am PS from the "fish-let" and she moved over to the other riverside corner with her prize, no attempt to eat, I'd call them all Stuffed-lets this morning which will help them fend off the cool damp weather, both are crouched down a bit facing west.

9:51 am The chick that flew off is still gone, wish we could id them easier.

Chick from 7:00 area flies off.



8:41 a.m.
Because someone else wants the fish the chick that has it decides to resume eating.



Isn't it funny? I have seen kids do the same thing with toys. They will stop playing with a toy and then another kid wants it so they play with the toy again and will not give it up. I wonder if the one eating again is even hungry.

The two on the nest are looking like a couple of drowned rats. The third chick is still gone. If he's the same one that spent the night away then we'll likely see less and less of him....and so it goes as the other two become more confident.

One chick on the nest standing on the fish. He's probably wishing he could fly to somewhere out of the rain with his siblings but he's not about to abandon his fish.

The fish has become a footstool - Chick is determined to keep it even though he is not hungry

What is that line from Gone with the Wind - "I'll never be hungry again!" ? Rolling on floor laughing

Wonderful to see them looking so good, in spite of the rain.
