Good Saturday to all!
Thank you Judy for the early morning s'caps of Mom as well as for the weather forecast -- and yes, I do hope that is that last of the snow, but this is Calgary........
Mom is content, relaxing and calmly looking around......oh I so hope our special man is on his way back here.....does anyone remember the date that Dad arrived last year?

Hi MIchelle

I just looked it up. He arrived April 24 - two hours after Mom and settled in immediately as the Male of Choice. Since he was a new partner to Mom, I thought perhaps she met him on their way North and had some courtship activity prior to arriving.

Hi Michelle el al.

Mom still sitting on the near rail. She was trying to place a long branch there when I tuned in at 10:13 am but although she was careful she lost it over the side. So she (and we) sit and wait for Dad!

Last year Supermom brought her new guy home with her on April 24th, (as I see that BET has posted.)

Nice sighting on the 17th, Christine, thanks so much. And BET, jkr , Michelle, Janet and Carolyn and Bev a big hello. I haven't been posting this year, just lurking, but loving all your posts on the various nests.

11:03 am Mom still here sporting a full crop and quietly looking around. Let's hope Dad makes it back from migration. That was quite the initiation he had last year to family life so I wouldn't blame him if he has second thoughts this year!

11:07 am, Mom just flew off and came back at 11:09. Moving a few sticks around and waiting.....

Mom left for another quick stick pick-up and is back and off again at 11:19. I'm wondering how many trees and shrubs were scoured off the site by the flood and repair work and if she will have trouble securing enough big branches for her nest base. Looks like she is doing okay as Mom is back again with a small stick.

I must see to my taxes today..Sad , late getting at it as usual. Oh the shame

Ok, good to know -- thank you BET for looking that up....and JD too (good to see you!!) good luck with the taxes! Not a favorite past time...we all can relate to the procrastination...I know I am guilty of that one....

I guess we have to be patient....just like Mom here.....Titter

wave Christine, BET -- this is so great! Please do!



***Here I am trying to figure out how to do this all over again. I still have my old computer hooked up & displaying the live feed from Calgary Zoo. I have read all this years postings. I hope to figure out what I did to post here last year. I was hoping to start from where I left off but my memory is so bad I sometimes forget that I'm senile!!
****Nice to see Mommy O back and claiming her nest.

Mom is so sweet to watch....right now she is sitting there facing south, doing that wonderful osprey head bobbing (side to side) as she is scanning everywhere....waiting and looking....she has also added a few more sticks I see....
