There are three eggs now with Iris' new mate. Hope for a good season arises. There is a vote between 4 names to choose his name which comes up by the cam, so if you enjoy that, do so.

I hope she is OK? Have they said? Thank you Ferenz. We had a dog named Finnegan (an incorrigible Irish Setter, but lovable as heck) years ago. I like that name too. (I liked them all).
I am guessing she protected her eggs.......

6/12/24

MISSOULA, Mont. — Iris the Osprey, whose nest is at the University of Montana has welcomed a chick. We're told she has not raised a chick since 2018.

Iris and Finnegan welcomed their new chick, just after 3 a.m. Wednesday.

According to researchers, Iris is one of the oldest Ospreys known in the world, they guess she is at least 28 years old.

NBC Montana talked Wednesday with Dr. Erick Greene, a professor with the University of Montana Division of Biological Sciences.

Greene says Finnegan is a great dad so far, bringing Iris and the chick fish quite often.

Great success for this old osprey queen

This is thrilling! Thank you Ferenz. I had just found out and then came here to see your report and the view of the little one. Iris is fortunate to have Finnegan taking care of her and the chick. Now we await the others I guess and happily celebrate Iris finally having a chick after so many years.
