MARCH 16TH

We have a bit of unsettling news to share and a thank you to Janet for giving us a heads up on the situation.
As if our poor O family doesn't already have enough to contend with.
A small natural gas line to the Zoo island is leaking into the Bow River. Atco states that the leak is small and that there is no environmental impact. Surely only time will tell whether or not this will have a longer effect on fish and birds in the area -- and our O family who will be arriving very soon.

Thank you to Michelle for marking the leak area on the map for us (yellow star) and showing the old and new location of the osprey nest (red arrows).

Once again we can only hope for a good outcome while we still wait for the live cam and any indication that our O's have arrived safely.

Not live yet but Enmax cleaned the camera.
I'm only speculating but I'm pretty sure they would have run the wiring the same day as the cleaning.

EnMax is aiming to have the camera stream up mid-April before the birds come back

I was hoping they would start the camera earlier just in case. The Osprey have been returning earlier to parts of the US and Dr. Greene posted that the baseball field female returned on March 25 and the male returned on April 1.

I note Hellgate's forum has finally surfaced so I deleted this information as not needed

Dr. Greene just removed the goose excluder. I am watching the O nests in my area -- still nothing yet but it could be soon.

The O's are back in my area of BC so the Calgary O's are likely home or very close to it.
Fingers are crossed that this is the week the camera comes live. I keep checking but nothing yet.

Good day everyone, thank you all for the updates
I too have my eyes to the skies....haven't seen any osprey around a few nests/platforms around town, that I go by every day
It will be any day....any second I think! Smile

Hope that cam kicks in soon. I wish they would turn in on before they come back.....sigh sign
