Sorry, I filled you in with the wrong information. :) The sparrows, ahah. I recall another little bird had a nest under the nest with babies even, yet, were they sparrows? I am not sure about that, (probably a house finch right?). I had a house finch come in my house a few years ago, well more than a few years, and it was fun to convince it this was not his house? Then I had a house finch build a nest on the wreath outside my back door, stayed a while, cool to see, but choose another location finally. It was safe from the hawks there. We had cardinals build on the holly in the tree in front of our front door and watched from egg to fledge. I never thought to document it, wish I had.

They, the sparrows are certainly filling in the holes. I am guessing the nest is fairly secure.
Thanks for the notification.

I just read back, wow, you were sure watching and waiting for Iris.
Waiting for Iris, a good thing to do,
she brings a big smile, even if you drop your shoe?
(heck it rhymed)
I saw her I did, in the middle of the night,
and then the lightning gave me a fright......
She is now gone but I know she was there,
the sparrows underneath made me aware.
(for you Heather)

Hi again ..
Nest is empty
screenshot_09.jpg
I checked the DVR back to my last post and no sign of Iris since she left at 2:19 am....
the little Sparrows were on nest and went to the basement below Iris's nest :D

This wasn't on the Cam Chat when I posted earlier this morning
From Cam Chat with thaks to Hellgate Osprey ..Check out this video
7/23 @HellgateOsprey Here's a short video of Iris's long visit during the night. The sounds of rain and distant thunder are soothing as she first lands on the nest. She landed at 22:26:24 on 7/22 and departed at 02:19:07 on 7/23. https://youtu.be/EhenB6-AhNI #HellgateOsprey

From Cam chat

👀 Iris stopped by her riverside nest this morning to give the Hellgate Osprey cam a great close-up of her distinctive, dappled irises—the characteristic for which she was named.
