Mom's on the nest eating. One of the chicks must have decided they'd had enough to eat and abandoned a fish ?

BET, the only fish I have seen brought in by a chick was a couple of weeks ago already when Middy arrived with a small fish in her talons one evening. Haven't seen the others bring in anything except for fish that have been part of a meal delivered by the adults.

... I am out again for awhile.

I did a quick check on the camera and there is nobody home. Right after that the camera blacked out.

4:48 pm
Mom arrived with a big fish and one of the LA's arrived immediately to claim it.
Mom left almost right away.

Instead of eating she is checking out the surrounding area.

I think this is JR.

After doing a lot of mantling and checking out the surroundings she flew off with the fish.



.... I'm out again to prepare supper.

Glad you caught some activity on the nest Judy. All day, the stream has kept freezing. I restart and it would freese, restart and let it go, come back and it would have stopped withing 10 - f5 minutes of my last restart. After the 3rd or 4th time, I quit.

Just checked back in to see Senior on the nest looking out over the river at 5:43

Sr. laying mid nest.
There is also a long branch that wasn't there earlier today so either Mom or Dad must have been busy.

BET, sorry that the cam kept freezing up again today which is totally frustrating. At least we did see the entire family and some fish deliveries. Left thumb up

I has been wonderful to see Dad back in action today !

SR finished her fish and then flew off. I'm surprised she ate it as fast as she did since she is such a slow eater.
JR remains on the nest.

JR spotted something and flaps a warning at it. After that she was busy scanning the river area.
