The defense gets serious. Both start screeching at the unseen Then Dad takes off and Mom off on his tail feathers after the invader. They do not want that creature anywhere near the nest

Wow, Bet. Another attack? I must get down there to see what trees are behind the nest, it is not good to have our birds under siege from above. I do think the attack last night which of course I didn't see was from a crow and if we had sound we would certainly know for sure, lol.

I'm so glad you are getting some rain Bet and we are hopeful for the weekend, even if it may turn to snow!
Fire bans are up all over Alberta now, they started in some areas in February.

Nest was empty at 1:20 pm but Mom softly alighted mid-nest at 1:25 p.m. Dad paid a brief visit on her back at 1:52, - short and sweet.

Yes, that is quite the fortress that Dad is putting up this year but then the city felled so many large poplars for the new bridge that he must have loads of lumber to choose from. Smile

2:02 pm Mom remains alone mid-nest watching the land behind the nest, at least she won't be bored at this site.

***Is there an Enmax video camera set up this year? I haven't been able to locate one so far! We drove by the area today on Deerfoot tr heading south & was wondering about where would be the best & shortest ride to start from to get close on the bike path. Maybe Max Bell arena.!!

And although i haven't visited the new location is apparently close to the muskox enclosure at the zoo.

Ernie and DKY, it's nice to see you both here again this season.

BET, I'm glad you were able to catch the attack again today.
JD, if you do happen to get a chance to go check things out we will be most interested to know what you find. I hope it's only crows and that they move on.

It's 11:43 so there's not much point in me posting a picture of the empty nest this late.
Good night .

I hope today Calgary gets the rain it needs. The weather forecast yesterday was way off..... here too. We were also forecast for thunder/lightning and rain and managed to get about 10 drops of rain out of it. We'll see what today brings. Come on RAIN !!

6:19 a.m.
Mom has been standing quietly on the nest for the past 15 minutes that I've had the cam up.
