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.
