I wasn't pay attention and then suddenly I saw Dad standing on the nest. Mom wasn't interested in givng up her spot so he soon flew off. I don't know if he had brought a fish, a stick or ?

I don't know what I missed here but when I looked Dad was standing on the rim with a fish.
Mom unsuccessfully tried to take the fish from him and then he flew off with it.
That was strange behaviour and made me wonder for a moment if I had Mom and Dad mixed up. He must have had some good reason for not letting her keep it. Hopefully he returns with part of it for her.

After Dad left Mom resumed incubating.

Thanks Judy it is good to hear that they both enjoyed a supper fish. Red Heart Dad only brought a couple of twigs this evening but he succeeded in winning back his eggs on the second try after 8 pm after cuddling with Mom a bit. He's adorable. Wub

Dad was incubating at 7 ish when I returned but flew off the nest at 7.23 and Mom flew in then. She worked on the bowl at 7.48 and 8.03 pm. Dad of course chewed more bark while on duty but he is good at jiggling the eggs too.

At 8.34 pm Dad sits calmly surveying the river. The sun warmed us up considerably today and the temp rose to 12 or 13 C.

I turned on the cam just as Mom arrived to give Dad his break. I can't imagine that they will switch again tonight.

Good morning all

7:13 a.m.
Mom is on the nest as I bring up the camera. For some reason I was actually expecting to see Dad there but since I slept late they have probably had a COTG more than once.

Dad arrives with a long stick which of course lands on Mom.

He did manage to get it moved and into place but not before stepping all over her.
