Not sure when it happened, but I think there are now three chicks on the nest, so at some point Mom must have left and the other chick arrived.

I'm pretty sure the same chick has the fish.

Battle for the fish! I know at least two of them were pulling away, and the fish looked big enough that it's possible that all three had a grip at least briefly. I'm not sure who has what yet.

I'm not sure, but based on nest position, I think that the chick who had the fish kept the fish. The one in the upper right is eating, and the two on the left are watching, and I think at least one of them is doing some calling, though I'm not sure if it's a request for more fish, or concern that they aren't the only ones interested in the fish that's there.

4:26pm eater has moved with his fish to 6oclock spot and is challlenged again; he keeps his fish.
Each challenge has been by the same sibling.

4:48pm eater is taking a break. the other 2 seem content to leave him alone for now; they have been staring out over the 9oclock side of the nest and sometimes calling out. Their whole body seems to quiver and they fan open their tail

Just checking back in Chick at 5:00 with the fish - I am almost sure is the smallest - the boy (that's my guess - boys are always smaller and are the slowest to mature - last to migrate too - I think Sept 17 was when the boy left last year while the girls left right after Mom around Sept 7)
