Louis brought Iris a fish, she took it, then brought it back for Louis, he ate a little, then gave it back to her.

Currently Louis on nest with stick, Iris on perch.

Beautiful posts Bev, and updates...thank you. Just an observation....Isn't it amazing the difference in the nest from now to last week? Look at all the sticks, defined cup, as well as railings. They are incredible ospreys. (I am a bit under the weather....hope to get back to myself soon).

It is absolutely gorgeous there tonight. Both Louis and Iris are on the perch and the "golden glow" time of night is occurring. It is unbelievably beautiful.

Peaceful and quiet,
after the visit from another osprey,
peaceful and quiet,
sit on the perch, just be.

Take care Bev, hope cold abates (maybe you caught it from Heather ;) )

Thank you Bev and Carolyn. Seems like this time of the year colds and flu get passed around. :(
First thing came to my mind when i saw your scaps and updates Bev is the nest is accumulating more sticks :)
Chuckled when i read your post mentioning the same Carolyn. Sure hope the female intruder gets the message to stay away.
Thank you for your poem , Carolyn.

I looked on the dvr and Iris flew off the FB at 9:13 pm

The nest is currently empty. That being said, Louis did bring Iris a big fish and she gladly took it. Also the amazing photographer who was around last year took some good pictures, one in nest and one in flight.

Dr. Greene wrote a good Facebook post about the nest and how privileged we are to view it. And to remember that it is not a Disney movie so do not count on happy endings (as we well know).

Thank you Bev and Carolyn. Looks like Iris spent quite a bit of her time on the FB today. Is this what she did last year up until laying eggs? Iris left the FB @ 9:18 pm close to same time as last night , interesting. A scap of her on the FB and another of her leaving

Talons grabbing fish,
talons lovingly moving grass and sticks,
talons stepping carefully around the egg,
talons carefully stepping around the little one,
talons showing the little one how to fish......

Talons cleaning the nest when the season is done.....
Talons......
