She stood on the nest rim looking up and down river, occasionally taking a bite of the fish she brought in. After at least 5 minutes one of the chicks arrived

Mom was more than willing to turn the fish over to Dale (and this time I am sure it's him)

He is still busy eating his fish as type this 15 minutes later and no brother Chip to bother him

Mom had been on the nest all alone for about 20 minutes. She took off doing a Vertical Lift Off. I haven't seen one for awhile and I rather liked this sequence illustrated by her shadow

Dad made a fish delivery and I was in the middle of a bit of work and wasn't quick enough for a screen capture..
I think Chip got this one.

He's moved his fish onto the rim to eat.
Dale is standing quietly without putting up a fight for the fish.

Oh No --- Cam froze ---- I hope this is temporary and not something that will affect the cam all weekend.

5:20pm MDT

Edit: Hi JKR, I see you posted the same event. It was Chip that got the fish. I watched for about 5 minutes and Dale finally ducked his head down so I could see his markings. Then no cam.

The cam just went down!!!! Friday at 5:20pm Bah Humbug. I sent an email, but since it's Friday evening, I don't hold a lot of hope

Chip had been on the nest for about an hour when just before 5:00pm Dale flew in. He must have a clock on Dad's habits

10 minutes later, Dad flew in - fish in talons. Chip got to it first and quickly secured it

Dad flew off immediately (I am hoping he's going for another fish, but no cam )

Dale stayed to the back of the nest and made no attempt to take the fish from Chip

I have discovered more than once that I have "mis-named" them. They need to have some paint markers. I don't think I have ever seen two so closely marked.:blink:
