JR flew off as Mid continues to eat.

Mid is still wrestling with the tail end of that fish. It must be tough and dried out by now.

Middy has been flapping around the nest and doing a bit of hovering but going nowhere.
I was hoping Dad would show up tonight but there's been no sign of him.

Middy flew off just as the wind started blowing harder.
I don't know how hard the wind is blowing but the camera is shaking .

8:30 pm
All three chicks came home in a hurry.
The wind is unbelievably strong -- currently gusts 70km/h according to the weather report.

Mid and Jr. flew off but Sr. stayed. She is having a very difficult time keeping her balance.

Both flew off and the nest is empty.

8:44 pm
SR returned. I wonder if she is afraid to perch away the nest when the wind is blowing like it is.


8:50 pm

Good morning Calgary

4:48 a.m.
The nest is empty.
I hope everyone made it through the storm okay last night. fingers crossed I did peek in around 10:00 last night and SR was still on the nest and the wind was still blowing.

SR finally joined her siblings.
I am relieved that the three of them are okay after last night's storm but will be happier if Mom and Dad make an appearance.
Dad is a concern because it's so out of character for him to be such an infrequent visitor to the nest this time of year. He really hasn't acted the same since he was injured so it's a good thing Mom has been able to supply the food

The two of them are still on the nest waiting for a fish delivery. SR chatters occasionally but MID quietly watches the river area.

7:38 am
MID focused on something across the river and then flew off.
