The time has changed to Daylight Savings Time.... but the nest clock has NOT. It will likely remain on Standard Time, as it did last year.....

General Information

In our search for names from the old Chinook jargon (Chinuk wawa) of the indigenous people in this region, as previous seasons.

We have found two names that fit perfectly.... not so easy with two chicks born on the same day and who are so very much alike and close in looks:

So we have named our chicks:
TOKETEE (Pretty / Handsome / Graceful) for Chick #1, who is all of these things, as they both are.

TSEE (Sweet) for Little#2, who is definitely that, as they both are, both so much alike in every way!

6:00 am

Toketee presses Tsee for his turn at the fish.... Tsee turns away. Toketee circles around and tries again... and looks like he takes the fish, out of sight on the south rim

Neither chick has learned to fight for their food... so far. Nicer for us watchers, but a tough lesson to have to learn during migration..... But there is time yet...

6:07 am

Toketee has finished the fish and joins Tsee and Naha on the north rim.  Looked like Tsee got the majority of the fish, but Toketee got a small meal too....  Can't tell for sure as it was mostly out of sight.

Bruce (M,Whole)
7:03 am Toketee moseys over and investigates..... peeks under Tsee at the fish. Tsee doesn't walk away, so Toketee backs off a bit.....
7:29:241 I think Toketee is eating the fish and Tsee is walking around the nest. The camera is glitching so looks like a flipchart... I might be wrong?
7:52 am 2

Naha hops down from the cam post, finds the rest of Tsee's fish near the south rim and pulls it to center, starts a feeding.  Toketee steps up, Tsee relaxes on the west rim.

11:14 am Naha flies off
11:49 am Naha.. in with a FISH?? She is acting very much like it, but I don't see one....
11:52 am Naha flies out again, shortly after bruce. I guess no fish, but she was acting very strange, making feeding chirps. Maybe she had a small remnant?
1:39 pm

Bruce brings a nice big deheaded trout. Toketee tries to take it, and mama decides to snag it herself. (Toketee's talons get stuck on it, but she finally pulls it free)

12:54 pm

REPORT FROM LOCAL JOHN PENFIELD:

​​this afternoon, I saw an osprey circling about 5 minutes around a large tree about 250 yd South of the nest . I heard another large bird calling from the tree, but I couldn't tell what bird it wasI don't think the other bird was an osprey. I didn't recognize its call.  ​​the Osprey seemed a bit agitated and kept heading towards the tree. I have no idea if it was naha or bruce. 

I don't think it was a crow. I listen to some Eagle calls online, but I couldn't tell if that was it.  ​​there are bald eagles here. 

(Thank you so much, John, I was thinking eagle, for some reason, if only because of how agitated and upset Naha was, and how long she was on guard. Bruce was probably nearby, and she guarded the nest.  ​​I think every osprey sees the eagle as an enemy, instinctually.... they do steal chicks. We have never seen an eagle here, other than one visiting the nest in the winter a few years back.... ​​I believe that Bruce tailed that intruder, whatever it was, and stayed on it, while Naha stayed with the nest and the chicks. Bruce was gone most of the afternoon, off nest, very unusual for him. Well done!)

Bruce brings a huge surfperch for early breakfast, Naha works on the head

Bruce (XL,Whole)
4:34 am 1

Feeding begins, in the rain, kids lined up properly, all eating

4:43 am Feeding ended, bobs all full... a great start to a nasty rainy day... full crops!
4:44 am

Naha resumes brooding... the fish remains on the nest. Maybe she will have another chance to feed before the hard rains....

5:35 am 2

Naha steps off the eggs, starts another feeding.... trying to get as much fish in them as she can (She must sense the weather ahead...) All lined up and eating again Feeds Extended Video

5:37 am

Bruce arrives with another surfperch.... excellent! Fishing will likely be poor all day....

Bruce (L,Headless)
5:41 am Feeding ended... Naha gleans and leaves the fish.
5:42 am

Naha resumes brooding, Bruce still eating the other fish. This is great, plenty of food early while they can!

5:48 am Bruce steps over to Naha with his fish, and feeds her.... awwww! He stays and feeds her for quite a while.... this pair is so sweet!
5:53 am finishes his fish, then steps over to take leftover from the nest cup. He stands on it for a while....
5:56 am Bruce flies off with the fish remnant
6:38 am

Naha flies out on a wing stretch....

6:39 am

Naha back in, resumes covering the chicks

7:05 am

Bruce in with the remnant of the earlier surfperch... The bobs line up

7:06 am 3

Feeding Starts.... #3 gets turned around , and then rights itself. Reaching waaay out to get the fish, very assertive!

7:13 am Feeding ended.... very good feed for all... big pile of comatose kids and Naha eats her share
7:14 am

Naha resumes brooding

8:04 am Bruce flies out after some alertng
8:40 am

Bruce in with another large surfperch, headless this time. Naha takes it and The bobs start waking up

Bruce (L,Headless)
8:41 am 4

Feeding starts, kids lined up, #3 in the back again, distracted by Bruce and wobbly

8:44 am

Naha flies off in the middle of the feeding, alerting in the distance...

8:46 am Naha back in, ends the feeding and cleans up. Bruce take the fish off nest. #1 & #2 each got a tiny bit, #3 didn't eat
8:47 am

Naha resumes brooding

9:48 am Bruce lands with the fish remnant... Naha does not get up off the bobs, so Bruce proceeds to feed her for about 20minutes! Second time this morning!
11:08 am This storm is really ramping up.... gale force winds, and driving rain. The level of commitment of these birds to their young is amazing....
11:37 am

Bruce blows in on the wind with a small fish... Naha gets up, gets blown away (literally) and lands back down on the nest, the Bobs are up and eager in the wind and rain.....

Bruce (S,Whole)
11:39 am 5

Feeding begins, little#3 is in front this time. For the first time I am glad the older two are leaning on #3, kinda holds him down!

11:40 am

Naha cuts the meal short, just too windy I think. She settles over them again.... they can't be very hungry, with all they've had today. Bruce finishes the bit of fish

12:06:371 The high wind blows part of the west rim over onto Naha as she broods. She holds fast, doesn't let it bother her. Wow....
12:40 pm Oh wow, the nest is starting to come apart.... now the east rim sticks are on Naha's back..... This is some wind!
2:04 pm The storm is letting up a little, enough for Naha to prop herself up a bit and give some air to the chicks.... just a short break, then back to hard winds
2:08 pm

Bruce shows up with a fish, stands on the wood on Naha's back, gets no response from her, so he flies off again. She is all business....

Bruce (S,Whole)
2:14 pm Bruce in again with his little fish, which he eats there on the nest. Naha remains tight on the chicks.
3:29 pm

Bruce in with a redtail... where is he finding these fish in this storm???

Bruce (L,Whole)
3:30:101

Right after Naha gets up, two chicks bounce up, and the 3rd doesn't move. From what I can see, that chick doesn't move at all during the whole feeding. I think we may have lost #3. Please see In Memoriam Extended Video on 2024 Nest Statistics (Top of obsboard above)

3:31 pm 6

Feeding started, totally hidden behind Naha... I see tops of heads, bobbing, so I guess they are all eating! C'mon Bruce, knock that stick off the edge....

3:37 pm

Feeding ended, still not sure what I was seeing... I think the chick I saw not moving during the feeding was #3... Will have to wait until Naha gets up again to be sure.

5:16 pm

Bruce flies in with a large surfperch in tow. Chirping to Naha, she is not interested.... He flies off with it. He will likely bring it back deheaded....

Bruce (L,Whole)
5:46 pm

Bruce flies in with the headless surfperch. Naha considers it.... She steps off the chicks to take the fish. The 2 bobs line up.... and the loss is confirmed

5:48 pm 7

Feeding begins... both chicks alert and active.... (looks like another pregnant fish)

5:54 pm

Naha ends the feeding, resumes brooding. Bruce grabs the fish... and life goes on...

7:14 pm

Naha steps off the chicks, has some flaps to shake out the kinks. One chick has a big PS... lots of chick chatter!

7:16 pm

Naha settles back down on the kids.... still raining
