A wonderful feeding just occurred. Lasted about 10 minutes.

Chip on the left - Dale on the right (I think Chin They are so close in size and the image is so small it is really difficult to determine)

Chip is so full he pulled away from the feeding zone and collapsed!Green LOL Dale took another couple of bites and then flopped down on the other side of the egg.

Mom cleaned up the bits from the nest bowl and resumed brooding.

BET thanks for posting the feeding today.
I was concerned after the non-feeding this morning.

9:20 pm
Mom is quietly brooding on the nest.

About 15 minutes ago the Calgary rescue boat went past. It was going much too fast for me to get a s'cap. I sure hope whoever they were out to save is safe. They have been warning people to stay off the river while the water is high.

Dad just delivered a KOI Whistling (Do you suppose Brian's pond is stocked ? Rolling on floor laughing )

Been quiet so far this am. I have not seen a feeding. Dad has appeared on the nest several times in the last couple hours in defending mode. He and Mom have both been showing signs of concern, but not overt defense. Mom stands over the wee ones, tries to keep them tucked in, but one does not want to be cooperative, he keeps standing and trying to look about.

Dad arrived with a fish. Even though I didn't see it until he settled into the nest I could tell by the way Mom was pushing toward him that she was claiming it. Green LOL

Feeding time. Chip is eating while Dale is waiting his turn.

I think Dale got a share but Mom's head was blocking the view.

I've noticed over the last few days that Dale does not even really try to get a share of the food until Chip is done. It doesn't seem to have been due to fighting, just size and strength. Occasionally Dale will get a bite while Chip is eating, but usually he just stands back.

Dad returns with another fish. He must have decided since Mom already had the first one he'd keep this. He flew off with the fish in his talons.
