Thanks Bev....This is the only cam I watch (and from time to time as I have a chance)....my cats have gotten used to the noise from it.

I just saw Iris on the nest again and Louis on Owl Pole. I will be back later or tomorrow.....
carolyn (and thanks Heather too)

later...lots of activity on nest. They have shaped the bowl (Louis has), brought sticks and Iris has sat on the nest while he was on the perch together. It's fun to see the beginning of the new year.

Iris has been on the nest for a while. She looks ruffled and wet in the rain, but talking as usual. I love her feathers blowing in the wind. There have been landings on Iris by Louis, who is quite a hoot.

Iris is on the nest again, after long being gone. She is actually "quiet"......and there is no train right now. She is just standing there looking around, waiting for ? The question is probably Louis and fish...oh she spoke up!

Great captures Heather! I just watched that on a video by Grandpa Rufus and wow, Iris sure made it clear that the female could not stay. They (Hellgate osprey) do not think she will come back after that. Wow!
carolyn
They think this is the same female that came first to nest when Iris came back. Can't blame her for trying, eh?

They were focusing on blood on her talon as she was on shaky perch in the wind. Then Iris brought a fish, Louis thought it was for him, but alas, not, she took off with it. He did some nest molding and sitting on perch in the wind. I had misinterpreted this, backwards but corrected now.

How cute! Both are on the nest together, with lots of close ups. :) Major stick improvements are being made on the nest by Louis while Iris talks and talks and talks.

I did have two scaps I took earlier @ 6:06 pm and didn't have time to share , thought it was quite humorous. I guess Louis was tired of Iris chirping in his ear so he went to a light post to left of nest and she was on the nest chirping at him
