Happy Unbirthday BET.....I hope your birthday was wonderful (My daughter was admitted to hospital yesterday and my good intentions of posting a card went out the window).
Let your pups give you a hug from me.

This pair is cool to see....they are perfectly in sync. The two eggs are promising.

Hi Carolyn,

I hope your daughter's stay in the hospital is very short so she is released quickly.

Hi BET,

Thanks for the posting with the egg laying and the egg announcement. How exciting!!

The opsrey in the picture were two youngsters at the nest at the 22X in Calgary. I took the picture last fall.

Dad arrived. He gently tugs on Mom's back feathers with his beak. Is that his signal for her to get off the eggs and give him a turn ? Whatever -- Mom's not going anywhere in a hurry.

Okay --- he pushes his beak under her to fluff up the bowl and maybe hoping she will move. She is ignoring him. Green LOL

Dad is unsuccessful in his attempt to switch with Mom so he finally gave up and flew off.

Morning All

Judy - Your sequence of Dad's - no other word for it - affection - for Mom and his wanting to be close to her and their eggs is wonderful. It made my day start with a smile. I have never seen another Osprey showing the need to be close and touching his mate as this male.

Over the years the activities that have been recorded on this nest are educational to say the least. They put a new slant on the historical behavior of the O's.

I just wish that EnMax would allow someone to monitor the camera and zoom in when appropriate.
