The kids are in the area but they like to move and they seem to like the rivers - not surprising, others have done as well at about this age.  Haven't seen anyone at the Alt Hotel since the weekend but will post anything that I manage to catch sight of!

Thanks for checking and posting a pic, TPC. I'm also thinking this is Porter enjoying some time at the nest.  :)

Thank you for the update, are the parents still bringing food to the chicks or are they hunting by themselves now?

Oh no, they aren't ready to support themselves yet.  They may just be starting to catch things on their own, but not enough or well enough to support themselves - they are still growing babies still - they are only 57, 56 and 53 days old as of today.  They will need another few weeks before they are fully self-sufficient.

A couple days ago my sister was waiting for a bus on Portage across from the Radisson.

She saw 1 of the kids soaring around, then it landed on a window ledge at the Radisson. Then another kid came and landed on another ledge.

Then 2 more birds came - not sure if it was it was Princess and Pip, or the other sibling and 1 parent - but there ensued a lot of screeching and yelling for a minute..... Then the 2 kids flew off the ledges and went with the other 2.

I'm guessing they were in the middle of a training exercise and the kids were goofing off so got an earful.  ??? :P ;D

TPC have you seen all 3 of the chicks? - Do we know they're all ok?  :)

Love the pics you posted, TPC! Very handsome fledglings!

It's good that they have names now. Thank you for all the thought, research, time and effort you put into coming up with a selection of names, and the background behind each.

Have not seen anyone at the nest, except for a couple of partial views of a juvie a couple of days ago.

I keep hoping to see one but haven't.  I thought I saw them flying around Disraeli bridge but my eyes aren't that great so maybe not.
