The last two were the view from where I used to sit and view the old location. There was no sign of Osprey over there, then I zoomed across to the New Platform and saw 2 Osprey there.

Thank you so much Janet Preston for your info, posts and pictures about this osprey family
I know you have keep up with them for years now. I had read that the Zoo had planed on a relocation
of a platform and I was really looking forward for info on the move.
I will be checking back and looking forward to see more.
Again Thanks for all you do
Trudi

What a difference one day can make -- one day they are determined to be in the tower and suddenly they change their minds and decide "home nest" is the best.
Janet I can't thank you enough for making the trip to the area and taking so many wonderful photos. This is turning out to be a better start to the season than I could ever imagine.

Yes, Janet thank you! This is comforting for all of you who have followed for years. I am so glad to hear it too (and see it!).

What the eyes can see, nest building in a zoo,
brings warmth to the heart of those who know and love,
Supermom and Dad.....hope for a great year with good surprises.

Hi to everyone again this spring! wave


And a huge thank you and hugs to you Janet for your gorgeous photographs. Cloud 9 I'm glad that everyone is happy with the comparison to photos from past years. The behaviour alone, ie. returning to the spot that our pair have nested for years and then quickly -within a day or two- locating their familiar platform as well as immediately starting nest building there certainly indicates that Supermom and her loving mate have returned once more.

I am puzzled by the camera not being in operation yet Puzzled and hopefully this doesn't indicate a serious problem.

If so I recommend that Janet be compensated for her fantastic coverage including a motorized transport to the nest. Surely the high fees that Enmax lays on Calgarians will easily cover her costs and reward Janet for a job well-done. Big hugs Thank You

JD et al,

April 1, I asked my contact about the cam.

The response was

"The camera is up and running and we are now working through some network issues to make the feed public. We are still aiming to have it up mid-April before the birds come back "

Which corresponds with the time that Janet reported. I can't find where she posted it but as I recall it said any day now.
