Wow, this is a nice surprise to come home to but of course when I check in nobody is home. Green LOL
Thanks for the screen captures BET. It's a relief to know both chicks are doing so well.

SEPTEMBER 8, 2010

6:45 AM
Tuned in to an empty nest this morning.
Maybe they are spending the nights perched in the trees along the river now and using the nest as a feeding station.

10:40am MDT

Checked in this am to find Dale (I think) on the nest. The sky is falling and Dale seemed uncomfortable - a bit fidgity. He was there for at least a half hour.

It's now 11:40 am and it looks as if Dale has been waiting quite awhile for breakfast unless I've missed a switch since your 10:40 post BET.
It sure does look like a miserable day in Calgary.

11:42 am
I went to take a screen capture and he's flown off. Nest is empty again.

One of the chicks landed at the 12:00 area of the nest and took off immediately to the right of the nest then the other came in from the left and landed for a split second then also took off to the right.

One of them is home again -- from this angle I have no idea which one.

JKR That is Dale. I had been watching and recording and was prepping images while he was leaving and taking off. The following 6 images happened at 11:30 and 1142am MDT - so precede your images. Dale has been on the nest quite a bit this morning.

11:30am

Dale on the nest when Chip comes flying in

11:42am
Both are sky watching like they are expecting a fish delivery - probably why Chip flew in. Dale starts backing up

Here comes the fish

Chip was closest and grabbed the fish

Dale makes a try to get it away from Chip

Chip pecks/bites at Dale

And then flew off with the fish

Dale stood - disappointed. Flew off - maybe going after Chip? in hopes of getting the fish. Came right back - which is where JKR picked him up.

While I typed this there was something else occurring - another fish and both chicks on nest.,

It wasn't two chicks on the nest - it was Dad and Dale

Dad inbound with a fish while Dale awaits

Dad stood on the nest for a minute or two while Dale started eating - then left
