Senior kept eating her fish, in a reasonably quick manner. AT 8:56, she looked about and then took off with the rest of her fish

Rolling on floor laughing Love your strange chick Bet. You managed to xapture a great assortment of visitors today. Bravo

Home after the oil change, etc. to see Sr on the nest calling and flaring her wings as she turned in all directions defending the nest or trying to but it is hard if only she and Dad are still here. Sr left at 11.34 am.

Sr keeps Dad busy filling the larder as we all know so we haven't seen the last of them yet. Cheers

Oh Mac/Max is darling Bet. I hope your dog's think so too. Dear catGood doggy

1.09 pm Sr on the nest again doing her usual calling and flaring as she moves on the east side. By 1.15 Sr is peering over the eastern side of nest and remains there at 1.23 pm. I just know that when I go out and move my sprinkler a fish will come in and sure enough....Fish... when I come back in Sr is already digging into a partially eaten fish. Nodding yes
