Dad flew in with a new stick. He tried placing it on the far edge up on the edge of the box and almost lost it over the side

He managed to work it back and moved it around the nest

He finally placed it in the near right corner.

He stood and watched the world for a bit. Had a foreign visitor for a very brief moment. He watched it. Then flew off. (JK I missed both Mom's fly off and Dad's. Get your screen cap skills busy)

While I am typing this dad flew in with another stick. This time he dropped it on the left side and just left it alone. Looked about a bit and flew off.

Visitor flew in made a "touch and go" landing. I guess he didn't like the look that big bird was giving him

Dad has been bringing in more sticks for the last half hour. I really shouldn't laugh, but some of his maneuvers are self defeating. Roll eyes He keeps piling the sticks up against the side wall and tries to place some on top of the box wall. The latter all fall down to the ground. He doesn't seem interested in covering the bottom. Sticks that work their way to the center bottom, he rearranges to the top of the side walls. I think he needs to go to a school of engineering

So far I have not seen Mom bring in one stick.

Winter Storm Warning : City of Calgary

Issued at 4:13 AM MDT Wednesday 28 April 2010

Summary

Intermittent rain changing to snow by Thursday morning. Snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 centimetres by Thursday evening in most localities. This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions...Listen for updated statements.

Details

An upper low pressure system will move across the Rockies into Southern Alberta today before moving slowly eastward along the Montana border. The storm will move into Saskatchewan by Thursday evening. Ahead of the low periods of rain have begun in many communities. As the low moves east the winds will shift to north to northwest 50 gusting to 70 km/h and the precipitation will change to snow over western and Southern Alberta. Snowfall amounts will generally be in the range of 10 to 20 centimetres, but elevation effects will enhance the snowfall to near 30 centimetres along portions of the southern foothills. Extremely poor visibilities can be expected at times with the strong winds and falling snow. Over the Red Deer..Drumheller..And Brooks regions the snowfall will be highest over western sections. Foothill areas to the west of Red Deer can also expect some snow but amounts look to be sub warning criteria at this time.

In with another stick. This one is longer than the box is wide and he places it corner to corner.
It's rocking in the wind so let's see how long it stays there Whistling

Cam is up again Grin Nice except for the fact that it's now SNOWING Sad Typical Calgary weather this time of year -- never know what you'll get.
