I meant to ask you about your kitten Bet. We need a picture. Dear cat

7.12 pm Just came in from watering to see our big baby on the nest.
If Mom has gone I hope that Dad will not abandon her though she may never leave. NO

8.44 pm Good night Judy and sleep tight - whatever that means. Smile We will see what tomorrow brings, though I have to take my car in tomorrow morning for its "annual" and an oil change.

Good Morning Calgary

4:42 a.m.
No one on the nest which is what I expected this morning but I did see a bright light on the path which was a cyclist heading west. Good to know I'm not the only one up early in the mornings.


I did a bit of scouting in our archives to come up with a timeline of when the osprey were last seen over the years and most years it was Dad who was the last visitor at the nest.

2010 - last on nest Sept 15th
2011 - last on nest Sept 11th
2012 - Sept 16th Christine had photo of Dad on a sandbar
2013 - Sept 8th Janet had pictures osprey in the nest area but they weren't going to the nest.
2014 - Dad last on nest Sept 11th
2015 - Chick last on nest Sept 6th
2016 - Dad last on nest Sept 11th.

I really wonder what happened this year to make things change so drastically ? Climate change ? Smoke from forest fires ? Too many altercations with intruders ? Too many osprey in the area ? There has been no lack of food.

6:48 a.m.
Empty nest

.... I am out to work.

Good morning Calgary.

7.39 am One magpie and than a second checking for leftovers for six or seven minutes.

The last sighting may end up ten days earlier than the earliest date we have on record if last night was it then Judy. Wow! And it is two weeks or more earlier than it could have been.
This is a head scratcher.
