Sorry I am late posting this

This season was much like last season in that Iris laid 2 eggs .. You can read all about 2020 here

viewtopic.php?p=269069#p269069

Iris looked after herself very well and attended to her nest .. Iris enjoyed her summer home and was later leaving this season ... maybe because the weather was warmer.. :) Iris was healthy and fit when she left :love:

God Speed you Iris . Have a safe migration , we all love you IRIS hope to see you back here next season :rh: .... with a mate that deserves you :love:

Thank you Heather, Carolyn , Ferenz and all who posted here :grhug:

Special thanks to you Heather for the the excellent documentation and scaps of this nest :hug:

Hellgate Osprey
@HellgateOsprey
9/25 #HellgateOsprey Historical Fact. On this date in 2012 both Stanley and chick Crown Royal were last seen. This is also holds the record for the latest date of a confirmed Hellgate osprey in the area. Pics of Crown Royal fish calling and Stanley delivering fish.

Wow, what fun to see. I agree he or she is beautiful. I also agree that it would not be good to see her or him back in nesting season. They wreak havoc on osprey nests. Nice now though!
