The best thing is Iris and Louis got the season they wished for.....not exactly as they might have wished....yet, a successful chick. We all are in deep respect of their skill.
Take care Bev and Heather.....(I came back sick and feel not up to posting).

Good Morning Philjo...what a beautiful surprise, thank you. Of course, I still cry over all the little ones from these osprey nests (and others) that do not make it. Over the years, this nest has been difficult, sometimes miraculous. What they did this year was nothing short of that. Iris with her fishing in addition to Louis really helped. The flooding of the river makes it a challenge to raise chicks, they did it.

This year will prepare Louis for next and we will see what happens then. I love pictoral surprises like this...thanks again. And thanks Bev for taking on moderating this nest, it's special that you did.

HI everyone

I got this beautiful sunset s'cap on Sept 22.
screenshot_06.jpg
This was a challenging season for Iris and Louis at this nest and thanks Philjo and Carolyn for your posts that described that perfectly ... plus they are many , many post and s'caps on this nest thread also .... sadly two chicks passed over the rainbow :brknhrt: but the good news is that oldest chick later called L'el'e survived :love:

Super Mom Iris and expert fisherwoman took a chance and left L'el'e early in the mornings just as it was getting bright and was able to bring a fish making sure that L'el'e was fed .. this went on for a few mornings and even during the day and then the water levels became lower and Louis brought in many fish every day to feed his family and himself!

This was first time that Iris and Louis brought up a chick together and see her fledge and it was delight to watch them do that :rh: .... Louis became an expert fishermen ... :)

I am a great believer in the Serenity Prayer and many times I said it while watching this nest esp. with the loss of C2, C3 and yes I did cry also ! I do believe C2 and C3 are flying free with Iris , Louis and L'ele' :love:

God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

And on that note thank you so much Carolyn , Heather for your wonderful documentation of this nest... by observations , s'caps , poems and for your devotion to this nest ! and Ferenz for stopping in from time to time and for your observations and s'caps ! It was a pleasure to be part of this team... :)

Repeating .....God speed L'el'e , Iris and Louis ..... enjoy your freedom and have fun with fish a plenty L'el'e :love: and we look forward to seeing you Iris and Louis next year ! :rh:
