3:18 pm A nice fish is being eaten at 1, missed the drop but must have been very recent.
A steal attempt was just thwarted, more mantling ensues.

All three young remain on the nest, it has been a lazy afternoon for them in the lovely sunshine.

Hello Calgary Hello allwave: back at last for a week or so .
3:53pm I've had the cam up for the past ten minutes and looks though there is an intruder in the area lots of mantling and warning calls as the three juvies protect their nest and fish.

Hi GD, welcome back.

It has been an eventful time at the nest. I hope you have been enjoying your summer.

4:15 pm. Thanks, BET, for the shots of the feeding and the explanation. What I saw makes sense now.

There was an attempted fish steal just a few minutes ago but it was unsuccessful.

4:24pm chicks are attentive to something going on over the water and suddenly 3 dark birds fly past on this side of the sandbar. A chase / pursuit?

4:36pm fish fight. It's all too fast for me to pick a winner.

The chick at 6oclock spot just watches...

4:44pm all is calm now. I bet that fish stayed with its original eater, because the eating is going on at 12 oclock spot, just as it was before the fight (see s'cap in post above this one)
