SR arrived from east of the nest.

Preening, and she continues preening for quite some time.

She is still on the nest waiting for fish delivery, preening and river watching.

2:56 pm
SR hasn't appeared to have any plans to leave the nest. Either she preens or watches but she's staying put.


I just realized that we haven't seen Dad yet today ? He was bringing in so many fish yesterday that I thought for sure he might be doing the same today. Mom has done all the deliveries so far.

... I'm out again for awhile

SR is still on the nest . Have to give her credit for staying power.

BET, I just saw your post above mine. Good to know SR took off for a bit so my post is obviously after she returned. I was away when she left.

4:03 pm
You would think SR would find a cooler shadier place to perch. It's 29C

4:43 pm
Still there. It's hard to believe she would stick around so long.

I can barely believe SR would stay on the nest this many hours. Unbelievable. She's really determined to stay until a fish arrives.

She finally flew off.

...and then she returned to do more waiting and preening.


5:56 pm
There must be something out there she doesn't like .

Good grief ! She is back again.
There has to be a reason she's sticking to the nest like this.

So it has now been 5 hours since SR first arrived and decided the nest was the place to be for the entire afternoon. She has flown off three times for less than 10 minutes each time and always returns.

The last fish delivery, I believe, was at 11:22 a.m. made by Mom.
Dad hasn't made an appearance so far today.
Neither of the LA's has been to the nest since before SR took up residence this afternoon.

7:06 pm
SR gets industrious. Fluffs the black plastic and moves a branch to the rim.

7:10 pm
It is now 30C in Calgary so why is SR wanting to stand in that oppressive heat when there are trees everywhere ?

7:23 pm
SR took off up the river.... but will she return shortly ? Roll eyes

Guess who --- I had a feeling she'd be back again giggle
I hope someone brings her a fish soon so all her waiting pays off.

One very happy chick. Dad delivered a fish for her.
Interesting that neither of the LA's made an appearance as Dad was arriving.

SR finished her fish, freaked her beak and poked about the nest.

She flew off.

We haven't seen either of the LA's since one of them claimed a fish at 11:22 this morning. I wonder where they are ?

I will keep the cam up until 8:30 and then that will be it for me for the night.

8:33 pm SR returned but I have to sign out for the night. See you in the morning. Good night
