Driving the stranger off. I can't tell if this is the same one from earlier today

Senior keeps on eating. Junior keeping a close watch for another opportunity. The Mid kept watch in the direction the stranger went and then takes off in that direction

And I am out for real this time. I know Jr and Sr are going to have a battle soon, but I need a rest from this

Good evening BET and Jean. I'm just doing a catch up here and it looks like I missed a lot of action at the nest today.

I also forgot how active a 4 year old is. She's a going concern in high speed all day long. Phew I wonder which one of us will wear out first before the week is done ---- I have a feeling it won't be her. giggle However, we did get to visit the fish hatchery and she did catch a couple of nice trout in the children's pond. Also, saw a couple of osprey while we were there so that was a treat.

It is 7:34 p.m. and the nest is very empty.

7:49 pm
Jr. arrived.
