Nest is empty.
No sign of the rest of the family this mroning.

Dale returns with a very small fish in his right talon. This is the first time I've seen one of the chicks bring in his own meal. Way to go Dale Very Happy

I am so glad you caught Dale's image with his very own catch!!!ClappingClapping

A sure sign he is almost ready to support himself and begin the long journey. I will be sad to see them leave. I haven't seen Chip for a couple of days now. He might still be around though as he did like to eat off nest. If he's catching his own, he probably will not make another nest appearance.

One chick is on the nest now, just standing on the back rim - I think it's Dale, but haven't gotten a good look

I haven't seen Chip either but if it was him that Dale chased off the other day maybe they've decided to stay away from each other.
Chip is also a bit older and likely to be less of a home body. The weather has also be quite cold which may have also given him the idea to migrate earlier. Calgary was in a heatwave this time last year and it's the complete opposite this year.

12:28 pm and the nest is empty.

Chip is still here. He just landed on the nest and immediately turned to watch Dad inbound with a fish.

He wasted no time getting the fish and Dad took off

Chip looked about and then took off with the fish. The entire sequence took place in one minute

DAle returned to the nest at a little after 6:00pm. He patiently waited, watching out over the river. After an hour of waiting Dad delivered.

A good size trout - headless this time

DAle quickly went to work on his fish and is still eating it on the nest as I type this

Empty nest except for part of a fish. Puzzled did someone get a bit too full to finish it ?
Is this the fish that Dale had ? I wasn't here while he was on the nest.
