At first i thought Iris had returned to the dead tree but she was chirping on the nest when this osprey was on the dead tree.
I believe the unknown female osprey flew to the dead tree 6:26 : 50 am July 16

I heard Iris chirp once and the sound of her leaving the nest , this osprey was on the dead tree 6: 28 am

Just a thought....I am happy Iris is eating well.......The unknown osprey could possibly be a chick from former years and this nest is known to her. You never know and we will definitely never know. I am again just glad to see life on this nest. (Yes Heather I always try to look at the bright side).

Louis should be over at the BB Stadium nest with Star, Bev. I know you meant, why does he not come here, but he has three to feed there. I just looked at Flicker and yes, he has been there, with Star pushing him to bring more and more fish. There are good pictures of Star on Flicker taken by Louis Matteau.
