You are doing great Bev....I do not see how you can do it with eye healing! Take care of yourself. I was surprised to see Louis actually on the nest with Iris...yes, it's his nest, but really Iris'.
Thank you Heather for all you do and Bev too.

Thank you Bev, Iris has not visited the nest yet again today. I am worried about the Sparrows undermining her nest :(

The years that Iris had failed nests she and Stanley were not around much. They were often on the stadium lights. They came back to the nest on occasion. This year she actually might have been on the nest more, or at least for longer periods of time, before departing again. They were often seen across the river.

Basically the nest has a specific purpose, breeding, and when not able to do that for any reason, they are not seen as much. I think I recall also that they were seen by walkers down the river with their catch. Does that help Heather? Any errors in what I have said are just because I am recalling, not reviewing. :)
