NO Jean, there is no sound for this nest. Seems you and I have a way of getting involved in nests without sound!! Wooh



5:10pm 1 of them has dragged the large piece of fish to about 5oclock on the rim of the box and I thought he was going to eat it... so far I'm wrong!

A brief period of activity on the river from about 4:50-5:10pm - I saw approximately 7 or 8 rafters float by...maybe a group of them launched off together.

I thought this photo was cute...this is just prior to the chick dragging the old fish to the lower end of the nest box.
5:09pm - "Hey, are you really going to eat that crusty, smelly piece of fish?" Wooh

Old Crusty lays at 3:00. Several attempts have been made by the chicks to eat it but they just can't seem to stomach it...perhaps it's diseased??

5:53pm - Chick that was at 9 has a poopshoot then walked across to 3 to attempt another bite of fish but decided against it.

5:36pm the big chunk of fish has been moved again... I think by the same bird.

he has taken it to about 3oclock spot and at the moment is eating from it.

5:38pm has now walked away to the other side of the nest abandoning the fish...

(I've some how got all my s'caps mixed up and I can't find the ones for this post at the moment... I'll add them when I can find them Rant: Bash computer Frustration

5:58pm chick at 9 moves over and takes up the fish behind his sibling's back.

He, too, investigates it a few seconds and then turns away from it. Very odd!

5:36pm no change from luvtheO's s'cap.

1 bird on the nest a bit restless and seeming on alert


6:44pm judging by the look of the water, there must be some heavy dark clouds over head.

@6:42pm
