The little sparrows are precious Heather - good catch! Bev, to say this is an unusual year for her is quite true. And then there was the year when the storm destroyed the eggs and they spent all of the Summer giving Dr. Greene agina by building on the stadium and he had to go up in big crane to take nests down before they fell on someone's head below. Stanley and Iris were incorrigible with that, kept rebuilding. I guess the bottom line is that there is no "usual". It is unpredictable in many ways.

Thanks Heather and Bev.......I truly miss Stanley! He was outstanding. i always envisioned him in a top hat and tails flying in with a fish. :) I try not to dwell on this year and what occurred as it upsets me so I don't go there, just accept what is. I am glad though that one nest got a good chick rearing this year, that brightens things up. Iris, as Dr. Greene as stated, has a long history, we cherish her presence.
