Don't be sorry Bev.....whatever any of us does is good and also there is the cam and the twitter next to it so it is always there...I do not do twitter, but find looking at those helpful, especially when I mess up which osprey it is. :)

The moments you can be here to see Iris and Louis and their antics, Bev (and Heather) are precious. We cherish each other for what we contribute as well as what these osprey teach us about speaking up when you want something (Iris), patiently not listening when you do not want to do it (Louis) and finally helping out in times of need (fish hunger)......
It's a daily or not daily fun experience.....we love you.

Thank you Bev and Carolyn. Sorry I couldn't be here, trying to shake off a cold that is affecting my sinuses/eyes. Maybe going to bed earlier would help :chin: I see Louis is treating Iris like a Queen, nice big fish he brought for her :rh: Goodnight :grhug:

Iris politely sitting on the perch,
talons curled and ready to get a fish,
whenever one arrives she is on the spot,
and if she does not get one you will hear the noise......

Far......

Good Morning all...feel better Heather....

"Singing in the snow, she's singing in the snow,
what a glorious feeling we're happy to know,
the mountains are white, and that is despite,
it's April and Iris is singing in the snow".......

Snow, wet, sticks, no fish.......

Aha, but I know what went on here today.....There was a lot of sitting on the perch, sometimes just Iris, sometimes just Louis, sometimes both. Louis brought many sticks, a small fish or two, Iris took it gratefully (not the stick, the fish) and they got snow on their feathers which now seems to have melted.

It was a "sitting around the house" kind of day for them due to the wet, snowy weather.
