Dragging it around the nest and has tangled in the plastic.

SR flew off with her fish after standing and trying to make up her mind what to do.

Hi Jean,
Our fire situation is bad around here. One fire is 7km/h west of town and another is about 17 km/h south west and today I see there's a new fire by Fernie.
We had dry lightning again last night and they said we'll likely get it again tonight. That is the last thing we need. The sun was nothing but a dark red ball but didn't break through the cloud of smoke all day.

Orange dots are fires 24 hours old, red dots are new fires today and the flames are large fires.

This one will likely show you exactly why all the smoke has blown into Calgary

Thanks Judy. I saw the fish come in and then Sr's extreme caution before leaving with it. What do you make of this? I don't think that we have ever seen anything like it before...how will she ever leave this nest?

Regarding your fires that is scarey...new fires breaking out and no rain in sight. Oh My

Jean, I wonder if maybe an intruder has stolen a fish from her in the past. She does seem to be very observant of everything before she leaves the nest.
But then again, I notice she is also like that each time she leaves even when she has no food with her. Something has obviously got her on edge all the time. Just wish we knew why.

I'm watching tennis now - the US Open as our young sensation is playing Tsonga in Central Court so I am glad that Sr got her fish. Take care and try to stay cool. Snow Snow

Re: Sr's insecurity. I'm sure that she must have had a bad experience Judy so maybe she was attacked for a fish and the chick's certainly saw some battles over the river as we saw them watching. That day that I saw our usually calm Mom rush into the nest absolutely frantic was the same afternoon that Dad showed up later on the nest with his injured wing. Sad

Have a good night Jean. I'm sure SR will be staying in the trees to eat and not likely to come back to the nest.
I'm also out for the night. Good night
