Wonderful to see Iris arrive home safely. Now if she can just find her own true mate! :luck:

Thank you Heather for contacting me about Iris' return. We wish for her a good, safe, healthy season. (You know my feelings about Louis). She is amazing and resilient.
Enjoy your beautiful day Iris.

Thanks Heather. I watched her on the nest for a bit today. She nestorated, then went on the perch to look around. There were good close ups. It is nice to have her back in view is it not?
