I wish that chick would just take that old carcass and toss it overboard! Titter

3:50pm they are still as in g.d.'s last s'cap. That slab of fish mid nest looks almost as if it were sliced open with a knife.

Speed boat raced by and bird at 3oclock took off....
3:52pm bird is back now, to 3oclock spot where it left from
I don't know if the boat spooked it, or if it was gone a second or so before the boat went by

2:54pm chick who was at 3 now at 11oclock corner .I see the chick at 9oclock spot is also holding a chunk of fish.


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

Here are the s'caps for what Terry just mentioned.

Chick at right side of nest suddenly took off. I to think that s/he got spooked by the patrol boat as s/he flew off a split second before the boat appeared. The patrol boat went by on the nest side going upstream.

Chick returns a minute later.

Very quiet day on the nest and river this September weekend. I've only seen 3 rafters goes by this afternoon and the patrol boat twice. I've rarely noticed the O's go into defense mode. Too bad their entire life couldn't be this peaceful. sigh sign

Hello mjb Left thumb up I agree...they should be out learning to fish rather than on the nest for so long.

4:13pm............2 chicks on the nest. They must be full as that left over fish is still there. What a great job Mom has done for these babes of hers. But now..........its time to start getting some fishing skills so that Mom does not have to be so attentive to them.

Hi Jean! These 2 are quite the pair. I wish I knew more about how Osprey learn their fishing skills. It certainly isn't by sitting on high and watching the view below.

4:34pm chick at 11oclock corner has moved in on the small chunk of fish being 'protected' by his sibling. -- Didn't even try for the larger piece!

Just a thought: as neither seem interested in the larger piece of fish, I wonder if they might possibly have a preference for one species over another? Maybe the big piece isn't as desirable for some reason as the small chunk. :confused:

4:47pm.......Terry, this is pretty new to me too. I don't know how they learn to fish, but learn they do. Surely they must figure it out somehow and I expect these chicks are right on track. A question,,,,,,,,,,I do not get sound on this site but I see a sound button at the bottom of the screen. Should I have sound?

The chick at the back is eating but both have been looking down at something.
