Hi Ernie

I checked my video recording for the times you posted and did not see any people walking or standing about looking. Several cyclists and that was it. If you go back again, see those 3 rocks on the river side of the nest - nest to two posts, one red and one yellow. Try to stand by the rocks and wave at the camera. Hopefully my recording will catch you

Good morning All.
BET, that Piping Plover photo is the cutest. Is that a case of "If I can't see you, you can't see me?" Grin

6:40 a.m.
Mom is working on the nest when I turned the camera on and I see that they have added long bark slabs to the nest again this year.

Dad arrived but I didn't see anything in his talons. He stood on the nest for a bit as if making sure no intruders were in the area and then flew off again. Mom continued moving sticks as soon as he left.

Dad arrived with another branch which he soon placed on the river side of the nest.

Dad and Mom have been standing watching the river for at least the past 20 minutes then as soon as I began reporting this they flew off in unison.

***OK! Next time I will try that. There are benches & a table right on the jut of land at the junction of the main river & nose creek. That's as far as we went. I took along binoculars but forgot my camera. Once there we were too close under the nest to get any worthwhile pictures anyway.

Good morning Ernie wave

9:10 a.m.
Dad has been bopping around the nest, stick to stick checking things out, and now has a white shoulder feather out of place.

5:30 pm

The cam clock was changed at 4:36 pm MDT to be accurate!

Mom O has been on the nest all afternoon, just standing about watching the world go by. She did leave briefly a couple of times.

Starting at 4:30p Dad began bringing in nesting material, sticks and grass on a 2 to 3 minute cycle.

At 4:34pm there was a brief interruption in his building efforts. An unseen intruder overhead had both O's looking up and circling their heads to follow it's path

When the alert ended, Dad resumed his nest building activities and Mom just stayed put - basically doing nothing.

5:07 pm He decided to mate Mom co-operated but did not seem to be enthusiastic about it.

Dad left and Mom has remained standing watching the world go by.

They may have arrived early, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Mom's fertility cycle is remaining the same. I did look back to last year, the first egg was laid April 25 which would indicate her fertility started somewhere around the 18th give or take a couple of days
