When I left, Senior was on the right side of the nest. When I got home and restarted the recording, she was on the left side . The video stalled 20 minutes after I left so I have better than 2 1/2 hours of the same image.

As I was reviewing this and Hellgates images, Senior received a fish

She was standing on the left and suddenly moved in an excited manner to mid-nest

And here is Mom bringing her a whole fish

Senior wasted no time securing it

Mom lewft ans Senior dragged the fish to the left river side rim and is eating and watching. That big stick has moved across the nest.

Thanks Bet for the beautiful scaps. Mom moved the large stick immediately after dropping the fish and then she flew out at 1.45 pm.

It took Sr six minutes to begin eating and she ate for ten or eleven minutes before her nerves set in. From 2.01 to 2.13 pm Sr stood with her fish and kept checking the whole area. Finally after taking another nibble Sr.darted off to the left with her fish. So she is still very nervous when she has food.

Hi Jean, BET and Ernie

4:52 pm
I've had the cam up just over an hour and there have been no visits by SR or anyone else.

5:12 pm
Mom on the nest. Sorry I wasn't watching when she arrived. By the time I realized she was there she flew off.
On second glance that may be Dad. I wish I'd had a better look before flight.

Yes well you know how long Sr takes to eat a fish Judy! And it was after 2.00 pm when Sr flew off with it. Green LOL

It was good that she was off the nest a lot today too. Maybe our girl will learn to become an osprey before winter sets in.Roll eyes I wasn' t sure that we would ever see the day.

Still on the nest and I'd say she is 100% more relaxed than she was last night.

7:24 pm
Caught this just before she flew off to the east of the nest.

Hi Judy. I lost my post earlier and had to return a movie to the library before closing. I'd forgotten how good "The Butler" was and long too. Smile

Anyway I'm glad that you saw Mom and Sr tonight. I missed Mom but did see Sr's two visits and loved seeing her large crop. She made big strides today I think and let's hope that it continues. Thanks for your beautiful scaps. Thank You

Ernie! Good to see you are still around, we seem to have lost everyone else. Dunno
