Good Morning Calgary

BET, thanks for catching that Grackle intruder yesterday. I wonder if that's who was bothering them yesterday morning ?

Things are getting serious now. In his frustration he has decided pushing might work better than pulling. That didn't work either.

If carpentry isn't going your way then maybe mattress testing is up your alley. He is comical !

Not too much to report. Both have been in and out a few times. Mom was on the nest with a small piece of fish in her talon which Dad later claimed and flew off with it. I have no idea when she got it .. she may have gone fishing herself this morning. If Dad caught it he must have given it to her while they were both away from the nest.
Earlier Dad brought in another branch.
Just the usual day at the nest so far.

Dad brought a branch and promptly dropped it on Mom before he landed. I'm sure she is not impressed.

Good morning all.wave Cute antics that you captured this morning, thanks Judy. Grin And a very scary encounter on the nest last night, Bet, but that bird looks more like a crow to me and I'm not sure that a grackle would attack an osprey but I will discuss that with my birding friends.

8:23 am Dad lands in the nest beside Mom and after moving a stick he scooches mid-nest. Then both work on some bark. Mom flies left at 8:30 while Dad remains mid-nest for another ten minutes or so.He returns at 8:54 and Mom follows sporting a nicely rounded crop. Dad is occupying the centre of the nest still, guess he is all ready to take a turn at iincubating those eggs to come.Rolling on floor laughing

I have to leave and walk my son`s dog this morning. I didn`t have time to post this but Dad delivered a nice fish to Mom yesterday before I left for my Bluebird trail. It looks like the fishing is good for now anyhow, but I hope we get that desperately needed rain this weekend. fingers crossed

9:10 am Mom remains standing on the nest as Dad enjoys his leisure.

Morning All! It's raining here JD - Hope this front moves your way.

Dad brought in a long wide double jointed piece of bark (He brought one in yesterday and pushed Mom around with it but I did not have the time to post it) He seems to be trying to build an interior wall around the nest bowl - An Osprey wall board? Grin
