Hellgate Osprey Cam

You are watching a mating pair of Osprey named Louis and Iris. These Ospreys usually start laying eggs mid April - May. 2012 nesting information: Iris raised 3 chicks with her former mate Stanley, unfortunately Stanley never returned to the nest in 2016 and is presumed to have died sometime over migration, Louis came into the picture in 2016 and the pair tried but failed to have chicks. In 2017, Iris & Louis had 4 eggs that successfully hatched. Sadly the 1st one died from exposure when it crawled out from under Iris during the night. The other 3 died from starvation because Iris & Louis were getting attacked by other ospreys when they would attempt to bring in food for over a week. For more information about this camera please visit allaboutbirds.org.

From Dr. Greene … Montana Osprey Cams Hello everyone, WOW – L’el’e is certainly growing fast on all the fish that Louis and Iris are bringing in now!! It is good to see her (we are not sure of the chick’s gender, but it is really big and starting to get a hint of a necklace on its breast feathers. So I am leaning towards a female chick for now!) start to catch up with her enormous wings, and start to flapercise. The photographer Andrew Lee flies in to Missoula this evening and he will be using the photography blind… Read more »

The River must be so much better, she was back in no time! I think Louie brought a shared fish this morning and it was not enough for her and Lele, so she just went and got her own.
