Goodnight/morning everyone, bonjour Bev, Heather, Carolyn, …!
Just two things to say
#1 May be i talked about earlier, i don't remember
Last year in Mardié near the river "Loire" in France the osprey nest met exactly the same situation as Hellgate nest, 2 or 3 eggs and the male went out with another female. The eggs were lost as the lone female "Sylva" needed to go out to fish for her...
This year, everything went back to normal for the 2 adults and they had two magnific and beautiful osplets... http://www.balbucam.fr/en/home/
next year will be better ! :luck:

#2 As i am concerned with the broken left leg of Rachel (mother osprey) in hog island (Ma), i checked the Audubon's cam this morning and saw this message from hellgate in the comments and i share it but may be you already saw it.

Oh Philjo.......Thank you! What a fantastic uplifting post for us. Iris Coffee will be superb. I am glad her story is spread far and wide. As for Rachel, I hope her leg can heal, that accident was horrible.

And the notes about Iris being in the best migration shape ever is good. She is older so the best shape is a great thing, as migration is tough. I hope when she goes she finds winds in her favor and her winter home welcoming with fish.

Iris is a beacon, for us down below,
we are not sure why we see it,
but when we do we know.

There is something in her story,
resonating in our own,
and for that fact we are never alone.

Glorious Iris, we love you.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 , 2019
No sign of Iris so far today .
But there were some Starlings on her nest at 12:01 pm and some type of Hawk chased them off, I'm guessing looking for a meal

The captures of the Hawk trying to grab the starling are quite dramatic Heather....bravo. I am glad, or hope, the starling got out of Dodge in time. (that is an expression from olden days). Hawks are quite good at getting their prey.

Yes, that does look like Louis. He is probably eating for migration also. I hope you see Iris if you wish to. :)
