Thanks for the information Christine. I hadn't heard the story of the Glennfield nest but I can't imagine why anyone would have believed Enmax would kill osprey chicks. NO

Around 9:00 this morning there was what I think was a pelican flying over the river. It was way too big for a gull and was snowy white. I wish I had been quick enough to capture it.

9:18 am
I did manage to catch a magpie.

I'm going to miss this cam even when there's nothing going on. It has been very relaxing to watch the river flow by.

Hi Judy

I just got time to check the nest - last day - had to see if any action and lo and behold The Canada Returns!!!

I see you posted the photos. Regarding a white bird, could well be a Snow Goose beginning it's migration to the fair weather in the South

BET, most of the snow geese usually stick to the pond and field areas, but you could be right.
There are lots of pelicans in Alberta as well so it's hard to say what it was. We'll just call it a BIG WHITE BIRD. Titter

The magpie returns.
This is a busy nest this morning. I wish Enmax would reconsider their decision to shut off the cam but I doubt they'd do that.

Wow, now a squirrel makes a visit. It has the skinniest tail I've ever seen and he's awfully small. Maybe he's wet or still a baby :dunno:

About a month ago someone posted a link to the Calgary city skyline and it showed the Zoo Osprey nest on it. Does anyone still have that link ?? I looked back thru postings and couldnt find it. Thank you - Janet
