I am back and it is dark ... I suspect Mel is on his perch above nest but I don't that for sure ..he might be perched in a tree close by :)

I checked the DVR back to when Mel left and he didn't come to the nest !

A good day on this nest......Dad brought in 3 big fish ! :)

Goodnight Dad, Mel Steph, Carolyn and all who watch this nest and thank you so much Steph for today :hug: and hope you had a great day with grandson Carolyn :hug:

I did have fun with my grandson today....thanks. So Mel is still around, at least for now. I am wondering, pondering and thinking that possibly the weather down South of NS is a factor is staying for now. These raptors are pretty smart and know things we do not know so.......flooding etc South delay departure?

Good Morning Halifax Osprey, Steph, Carolyn and all who watch this nest .

I am sure Mel didn't sleep above the nest last night ..he would have dropped down in the nest this morning if he had JMO
screenshot_03.jpg
I am happy he slept perched in a tree where he would have been warm and cozy with more protection from the wind :)

Posting this for information purposes and this could change !

Dad was last seen yesterday with a big fish for Mel at 5:49pm .. Mel left with his fish at 6:09pm.


Mel may have left over fish from last evening and is eating it before coming to the nest :dunno:

Thanks for the response...I know my pets know about impending weather...see it all the time.
As for Mel, I am not reposting migration post, we'll see...keeps surprising me. I hope though for the best for both of them...
the last two that I watch on the osprey cams. What a glorious season it has been, good and bad of course, but still to see that wing spread and learning is amazing.
