JudyB, was it you that asked about the location of the Calgary International Airport ?

A year ago when I was flying into Calgary from Cranbrook we flew just to the east of the zoo island and I easily spotted the nest. Of course my camera was in my bag and I didn't have time to take a picture. Maybe next time I fly up I'll remember to keep my camera in my hand.

Magpie has found something to eat. Probably bits and pieces of leftover fish.

Nice to see the camera back! Thanks, Enmax.

If you emailed Enmax to change the view and have a minute today, please email them again to thank them for readjusting the camera.

Thank you.

One on the nest.
No sign of Mom yet today.
Only one chick has been seen but it could be two different chicks making appearances at different times.
Last year the youngest chick (Alvin) would return to the nest while the two eldest stopped coming home.

Two large dark birds flew to the sandbar. The lighting right now made it too difficult to distinguish whether or not they were osprey.

10:37 am
The chick on the nest flew off and headed directly to the sandbar.
She is the black dot in the water at the tip of the sandbar.

I am out for the day.
If I hear back from Enmax or the Zoo later I will post from my phone to let you know.

One chick is on the nest and if i were to guess,it's a male juvie,in a week i bet his chest will look stellar white,with the brown always underneath,
it already looks quite white and this chick is wet,must have had a bath or tried to fish,a
plane flew over and the whole shadow showed up in the screen.

A second chick showed up at the nest - and sure enough, seconds later, in comes Mom with a fish!

I confess I wasn't paying attention - there's been one chick on the nest on and off all morning, and I think the nest was empty, then one chick arrived and the second a few moments later, followed almost immediately by Mom (or at least by an adult - very quick visit). But it's possible that one of the chicks was hanging out on the nest.

Either way, it's the chick at the 12:00 position who has the fish.

It seems that it's this chick who is out with Mom watching/learning how to fish. Several of the fish deliveries that Mom has made recently have this same scenerio played out where the chick arrives in sync with Mom and the fish.

It really does comfort me to know that at least one of the chicks is actively learning to fish.

This other chick - whom I'm assuming is the youngest - stays on the nest most of the time, which does worry me a little.

Hopefully, this youngest will follow in the footsteps of its sibling and will also be leaving the nest more - soon!
