3.44 pm Sorry you are having such problems Bet. Sad Sr has been preening and patiently waiting for a fish no doubt. She looks good and relaxed again today at least so far. I know that the nest was empty at 2.36 pm but I didn't see her return either as I had a phone call.

Hi BET and Jean,
Thanks for your reports today. The camera froze twice when I brought it up a few minutes ago so I can only imagine your frustration with it today.

4:59 pm
The nest is empty.

I don't know how time I will put in watching the camera this evening. Like everyone in Cranbrook today I am totally distracted by two new forest fires quite near us and wouldn't you just know we have a wild wind blowing. For the first time ever our Canadian Rockies International Airport has been closed all day for bombers and helicopters to refuel. All Crown land is closed to everyone and people are urged not to go camping this weekend. We need rain Cry

Thanks BET. I know you can relate to forest fires. If the wind wasn't blowing I'm sure things would be under control quickly but as usual the hotter the afternoons get the harder it blows. Unfortuntely, they have now started evacuating part of the St. Mary's native reserve north of town. They said on the news something like 30 families so far are evacuated and many more north and south of town are on evacuation alert. Sad

This is the smoke plume of one of the fires taken at the furthest north end of Cranbrook (I live on the far south end)

No sign of SR or anyone. It's nice to see that she is finally acting more like a wild bird instead of a homebody.
