5:53 AM
Yesterdays fish is still laying on the nest. The chicks are obviously spending their nights perched in the trees now or I'm sure the fish would have been consumed.

It's hard to believe no one has returned for easy pickings on this fish. Maybe Dad delivered those fish yesterday and said "this is the last delivery -- eat up --- because tomorrow we leave " ! giggle

3:40 pm
Dad arrived with another fish and of course I missed the screen capture.
He stood on the nest looking around as if waiting for Chip to arrive. No Chip.
Dad then flew off in less than a minute and took the fish with him.

3:42 pm
Dale moves his fish to the rim and stand wrestling with it.
He suddenly decides to fly off over the river taking his fish with him.

6:10pm MDT

Dale landed on the nest about 5:50pm. Stood on the back rim and preened. After nearly 10 minutes he flew off. Came right back landed and Dad delivered.

Dale left immediately with fish in talon.

Five minutes later, he returned with the fish.

He has just been standing on the nest rim with his fish under foot - making no attempt to eat it for the last 10 minutes. Evidently not hungry, but not yet willing to abandon it as he did last night.

The nest is now empty - probably for the night

Chip is home and has been standing on the nest rim for a few minutes now. At first I was sure it was Dale until he turned his head and he had Chips markings.

11:50am MDT

Dale was perched on the nest for quite awhile around 10:30am. He finally left. About 10 minutes after he left - 11:30am - Dad landed - no fish

Ever alert chick came flying in from the river within 10 seconds of Dad's arrival

He quickly searched Dad's feet - no fish - so he just stood there. Dad took off and I think it was Dale followed.

About 5 minutes after they left the clean up crew arrived

Around 8:00 a.m. Dale landed on the nest followed by Dad who dropped off a fish.
Dad flew off immediately
Dale followed suit and flew off with his fish in his talons.
Of course I missed all the action because I was busy posting on another part of the forum :blink:
