The chick at 7:00 is eating the old fish with gusto. He must not be the same chick that was munching on it earlier today.......or if it is the same chick he is eating it so his sibling can't have it.

8:54am.......Good morning Gerard, Jean and Carolyn! There is one chick on the nest right now. It is pulling hard on the food in the lower left corner of the box. Gerard, I appreciate your views and have learned a lot from you. I don't know what is the right thing to do here but I know we all want the same result............a healthy chick that is able to go on with its life in a natural normal way. So I will keep my fingers crossed, and my eyes too if that helps! fingers crossed Rolling on floor laughing

Mom just arrived. I think she brought a fish, but am not sure. She and the chick on the nest are now both at the 12:00 position, both eating a large fish, with Mom occasionally feeding the chick.

I'm happy to seem Mom looking a little plumper than she did after her first week as a single parent. love

Hard to really catch Mom feeding the chick from this angle - but she is.

A second chick just arrived. So far she's just been sitting and doing a bit of mantling in the lower left corner; Mom and the first chick continue to work on the fish.

12:43pm............2 chicks are on the nest. They both seem to be picking at something. The one at 7 was eating a large fish but walked away from it and now seems to be nibbling on something at the far right bottom corner of the nest. No shortage of food here!

Hello Everyone,
I don't know when this new fish arrived, but this chick seems to be working on a fresh fish.

Gerard I also want to say that I appreciate reading your comments and views. The length of time you have been observing this bird certainly adds a very strong knowledge base to what you have to say. Thank You

I agree, we all want to see this chick released healthy and as quickly as possible. What I'm not understanding, is why it's taking so long to assess the chick for injuries. Regarding the weight issues: It spent a day on the balcony without food, then went to the CWRS for care where it's likely not eating normally, or not at all while in that environment, so yes, I'm sure it's lost weight. I guess because we don't know exactly what the issues are that have caused her to still be there, this is leaving me feeling anxious knowing each day she's in captivity is reducing her chances of survival. If we knew there were specific reasons they still need to keep her, that would alliviate my stress. They said they need to do xrays today, but could that not have been done within a day of her arrival? It's just such a critical time for this chicks survival. I really hope she can be released today if the xrays are ok.
