7:59 am
Everyone went on alert to something -- two of them partially opened their wings in defense but all three watched whatever they think is a threat.

8:01 am
The chick with the fish is still standing on it but not eating.
The chick at mid nest is looking his way. He did move in a bit closer a few minutes ago but just a look from the other chick made him keep his distance.

8:06 am
Everyone continues to stand quietly and suddenly the chick from 7:00 heads over for the steal and is warned off again.

The opening post today was a joint Judy&Judy project, Christine. Titter I created the post and added a s'cap from my vantage point in Maine, where it's 2 hours later than in Calgary - but I still would not have been awake enough to try to find and post the local weather. By prior agreement, Judy/jkr often adds the weather to my post on those occasions when I make the first post. However, unlike me, she is a morning person - so more often than not she is awake enough to do it all!

I'm not going to be able to watch much today, so will be stopping by the thread from time to time to see what happens. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be another good day for the osprey and those who watch them - it certainly does seem to be off to a good start!

All three on the nest.

All standing very still except for swaying in the breeze.

8:40 am
Chick at 1:00 does a poopshoot over the side.
Now he moves toward the one with the fish. The one with the fish stands on it but hasn't been eating for awhile now.

Because someone else wants the fish the chick that has it decides to resume eating.

Good Morning!

All Y'all certainly are here and wide awake? That might be questionable?

I am glad to see Chick #3 is there so all are accounted for at this exact minute - that wil change for sure in a bit.
Thanks for the great pictures of them - hope for a great fishy kind of day for the chicks and Mom.

Raining a bit harder now and the chicks are beginning to look quite wet.
There is very little activity at the sandbar this morning.

Morning to you all! Yes, I am awake - after all it's 8;00 Pacific time I have fed the zoo, had a couple of swallows of coffee.

Happy to see the wanderer after spending the night out is home (Maybe she went to Vegas to party with Harry? Grin)

When I sat down to watch, two were very intent on "below the nest" Magpies maybe?

They are off to a good start - at least two, a left over hugged closely through the night fish and a brand new one too

The chick with the fish backed up from his meal and flew off.
The chick from center nest claims it. The chick at 9:00 didn't appear very interested in it.

9:07 am
After his fly about he returns to the nest.

The chick that did claim the fish is standing on it and hasn't begun to eat. It makes me wonder if they aren't all that hungry.
The chick that returned from the fly-about has flown off again.

9:10 am
He's back again.

Trying to make the fish owner feel guilty?
