:eggthumb: Came in to see if there was a feed early this am and ended up staying scanning the DVR for a long time! What a wonderful morning here. It started shortly after daylight with Louis bringing in a very nice fish with head intact. All have fed from this fish all morning long. Louis was very instrumental in insisting all eat. He tried to feed Iris who resisted his 1st attempt, finally accepting a feed from him later in the morning. He also would go through motions (without the food in his mouth) of feeding the young, until Iris took the hint and would resume another feed whether they needed it or not. The kids look great. Their baby blue eyes are no longer dull and sunken, but full and glistening!! Louis also decided the nest needed work, initially bringing in a multi-stemmed branch suitable for a high rise! It was longer than the width of the nest, also. I thought he will never get this worked in. Eventually he got it to drop over the side of the nest catching on other branches and the opposite end caught on part of his perch that attaches to the nest. He has since brought numerous limbs and even Iris has brought some in. Interestingly, a difference on this nest (@ least this am) is when they fuss over placement yanking back and forth, Louis does not cave in under the pressure, it went where he said it would go!! :teehee: :dancegirl:

:flirty: Plenty of food this morning. Louis got one of his fish caught up in the railing, but eventually he was able to free it. Iris allowed him to feed her again this morning!!

Cam op has been scanning for Louis. I don't think they have eaten in last 4 hours from DVR and no crops seen. From comment on Twitter, seems they did eat late morning though.

Louis brought in a large fish about 9:30 PM last eve per Twitter. After he was sure family done, he took it away to eat. No fish deliveries seen per DVR so far this morning. Another rainy day!

Medium-sized whale just delivered by Louie! Iris took a few bites and is feeding her hungry cutie-pies.
(approx. 1:30pm (eastern time))

:biggrin:

Louis is on the perch observing in the rain. Not sure if it's raining, everything is wet.

Added (approx. 1:40pm): Both chicks' crops are growing :teehee: I haven't seen any bonking.
:15heartbeat:

Not a whopper, but a fish delivered a little before 9PM tonight. Iris called for more, but I think that's all till morning. She had very little of it, giving it to the chicks instead. :flirty:

Louis did not bring in his usual large fish @ dawn, but was able to bring in a smaller fish a few minutes ago that they consumed. Twitter reports intermittent rain to continue through tonight.

Quick check-in. As far as I could tell (Hellgate Twitter), nothing to eat since this morning.
The chicks look wonderful! Gorgeous feathers popping out and sounds like they have found their voices!
(What a relief!)
Fingers crossed that this family continues to do well.

:flirty: :biggrin: :flirty:

:loveshow: You are correct bonbon and Louis did not bring any more fish the rest of the day, sorta. So, @ 8:11 PM Iris took the risk and went fishing @ Rattlesnake Creek (they believe Louis is fishing here also d/t the rising, fast running, river with debris) and returned 15' later with a HUGE fish and starts feeding the chicks. Shortly, Louis arrives with a fish. Iris decides she wants that fish too. Then Louis slips around and takes off with the fish she caught and goes to the owl pole, only to be run off by a black bird. The cam op did an extraordinary job of keeping up with these events including closeups and this nearly 7 minute video is worth viewing in its entirety.

:sunsmile: Also, from twitter I noticed someone says sunshine begins tomorrow and to last the rest of the month!!

From twitter, I don't think they have eaten yet this morning. But Louis did return with Iris's big catch to the nest @ some point after being run off the owl pole last night. So, it was a 2 fish supper!!
