No sign of Mom yet today but there is an osprey at the sandbar. The chicks have been looking that direction and chattering so perhaps it's Mom.

One chick took off toward the sand bar just as the osprey there was flying off. I wonder if it was Mom and he thought she had a fish ?

The osprey at the sandbar may have caught a fish. As it began flying down river it hit the water once or twice before getting fully airborne. The chicks on the nest watched but didn't show any reaction so maybe it wasn't one of ours after all.

An O flies down river and the two chicks on the nest appear excited. Maybe a fish delivery coming in soon ??

Not much of anything happening.
What does surprise me most is the amount of time that they are spending on the nest.

No idea what species of bird is flapping around in the water but it made it's way to the sand bar.

Now there are two larger birds at the sandbar --- I didn't see any white on them when they flapped so they may be cormorants.

Terry, you asked about the species of fish in the Bow River. There are Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Bull Trout and Rocky Mountain Whitefish

Mom brings home a fish.

The chick that secured the fish ran to 5:00 corner with it.
Mom almost immediately flew off.

The chick with the fish has been standing on it andnot eating.
Looking toward the sandbar it appears there are two osprey out fishing. Obviously not ours unless one is Mom.
