7:24 am
Turned on the camera just in time to see the tip of tail feathers taking off into the air and now the nest is empty.

BET, I wish I had the secret to the fountain of youth Titter My avatar is my new kitty. She's a 16 week old russian blue called Mischa.

7:53 am
Not sure who this is -- maybe Dale ? I knew if I waited long enough someone would arrive home.

Checking in to see an empty nest.
Not so much as a fly by over the river either.

Checked in to see Chip standing on the nest rim with a BIG fish

He struggled with it, trying to get it set the way he wanted to eat. Ate a bit, fiddled some more. 30 minutes later he was still struggling with the thing although the fish did seem a bit smaller. Dale arrived

Dale made a rear action attempt to get the fish, Green LOL but not luck.

Dale backed off and went to the opposite side of the nest. 20 minutes later he is still standing waiting.

2:30pm

About 1:30pm after working on the fish for an hour, Chip quit eating. Cleaned his beak on the nest sticks and Dale moved in to take over the fish

Dale was eating steadily. Mom arrived about 1:45pm and just stood on the near side of the nest rim.

Dale continued to eat for about 45 minutes. He cleaned his beak and took off, leaving a portion of the fish for Mom

A family that shares. One fish feeding 3.

Tuned in to see one of the chicks eating and the other one heading across the nest maybe to give him a bit of help.

Same chick is still eating. The other is standing watching but not stealing the fish.

I really do have a hard time telling them apart but I think it's Chip with the fish and Dale doing the waiting. They look like duplicates of each other now that they've grown up.

5:42 pm
Looks as if Chip has finally shared his fish and Dale has taken it, or part of it, to another location to eat.

Chip flew off leaving Dale to eat.

Both chicks were on the nest when I noted they were sky watching intently.

Here comes the fish

The nearest chick - later I decided it was Chip - got the fish.

Dale was not going to let this one go. He dove under Chips wing and grabbed hold of the fish with his beak. Chip was forced to use his beak in a big long tug of war

The war for the fish lasted better than 3 minutes. One time Chip had control of it. But, Dale dove right back in to grab it and the war continued.

Finally when it was over the Winner - is Dale

He ate the whole fish with Chip hovering, hoping for a chance to reclaim it. Problem solved
7:54pm Dad brought another fish and Chip is now busy eating.

PS: At least I think that I have the identity of the chicks correct, but I won't swear to it.

If I have my chicks correct this is Dale having a fish meal on the rim while Chip stands watch on the other side of the nest.

7:14 am
Chip flew off.
Dale is still working on his fish.

7:30 am
The nest is now empty.

7:50 am
When no one was coming home for the past 20 minutes I took a closer look at the camera and found that it had stopped.
Once I got it running again Mom and the chicks are standing on the nest.
