WEATHER

High 25C
Sunny
Wind N 10km/h
Low 8C

5:26 am
I'm getting a "subscription failed" notice - am guessing they'll need to restart the cam when it gets to be business hours in Calgary.

Re goslings - here's a link to a gif on the Maine forum from a different nest 35 feet off the ground - http://www.window-on-wildlife.com/index ... 6#msg37596; there's a video on the following page as well.

JudyB, that video of the goslings leaving the nest is fabulous. Mother goose must have stood below and called them down one by one. Talk about a leap of faith !


Keeping fingers crossed that Enmax gets their server work done and the cam online before quitting time today so that we can all enjoy the O's over the long weekend ahead. I know they said 8:30 this morning but we know that with servers that it's not always a guarantee that things work out the way they're intended.

I'd forgotten that they were going to be doing work on the system - thanks for the reminder, Judy.

Morning All

Thank you Judy B for the link to the Canadas. Amazing that those little goslings not only leaped off the nest, landed safely, but that their parents could find them in those high weeds. And that was a long walk to the water. Have to smile as they made their first steps into the water.

Two chicks on nest . One with half eaten fish.

I will be gone a lot today, but will keep the recording going. Hopefully the cam doesn't go down and give me two hours + of black screen. Note any times that you want me to check on.

Two chicks on the nest and still some fish, I think.

(Thanks for catching my time boo-boo, Jean - the other osprey nest and the eagle nest I'm currently watching are both eastern time, as am I - so switching to mountain time to post about these osprey is a challenge, especially in the morning when I'm only half awake!)
