Two on the nest. One looks like it is kind of laying down. Clouds have come up and there is a chance of a thundershower but does not look like it at my end of the city.

Hi BET, If you are recording can you check the fish delivery at 3:38 pm. Two were on the nest, mom came in with the fish and there was a fight for it. One chick was pulling the fish and it was stuck on the other's foot so it was pulled along. I was not able to get a s'cap. sorry.

Great description, Christine! Here are a couple of s'caps - and I'm looking forward to seeing what sort of details BET can add.

Right after Mom arrived

Mom getting ready to get out of the way! I'm not sure if they were both pulling on the fish yet - the chick in back was definitely pulling on something, though I'm not sure if it was the fish or part of the chick in front.

Third chick arrived a minute or so later, but everything was settled by then. It is a big fish - but as far as I know, the first one delivered to the nest today.

The chicks have been spending time away from the nest - so perhaps they have managed to catch something!

I came for the eagles, and stayed for the friends I made

Hi All

Just got back home and got everything put away and the dogs settled down so have a chance to see how our Chicks are doing and try to catch up with the posts.

I note you want the nitty gritty of Mom delivering and the fish fight. So I will skim the giant recording made while I was gone

Be back

:hello:
It was gone by 8:44 am but I was AFK and did not see it fly off.



Okay, I know I am going to kick myself when I know the answer to this question but I need help. What does AFK mean? :dunno:




Feel free to kick me, lilywriter. very embarrassed I am terrible for using abbreviations and forgetting some may not know what they are. I use them because I am such a slow typist I use any advantage I can.

BBL = be back later

BRB = be right back

4:04pm seems like it's a bit cloudy on the river today.
The water is quite dark looking and not much ripple :umb: maybe?

4:17pm chick at 5oclock corner stopped eating. they are doing that 'quivery, 1/2 mantle move' and watching the sky... is something up there bothering them?

Here goes a brief reenactment

They both dive for it - "We love you Mom. Your foot is most interesting"

"Maybe it will break in half and we can each have our own!"
