What great photos of Iris! My husband, a few years ago, was in Rockport TX with some guys fishing and actually saw one of the Montana osprey as charted on the map. When I saw his picture I figured out from reports that it was a Montana osprey and got chills....actually even a named Montana osprey.

I am so glad Iris will go on migration full of fish and healthy. Thank you Heather for your captures and Bev for all you do too....
