At 8.04 pm Louis is on the eggs. He must have visited Iris'spa earlier as his close ups are glorious.

8.15 pm Iris comes home and softly but determindly approaches the bowl to regain her nest. Louis exits but comes around to make sure the third egg will carry his genes. Wub

I had the cam up this evening and saw a very sleepy Iris with her head down most of the night. Good to see her sleeping well as her third egg forms inside.

Light rain started beading on Iris's back and she shook her head as she rose to tend her eggs at 10.50 pm. After staring at an empty parking lot for awhile Mom fell fast asleep once more. This sleep wake cycle may go on all night...it is normal for Iris.

Midnight: Sweet dreams dear Iris sleepy

I am glad you were here Bev and thanks for all the scaps. Iris has quite a time of it and I'm glad she won't have to lay two more eggs as in two previous years, poor dear. Wub

A reminder that Dr. Greene will be answering questions at Hellgate from 1 to 2 pm EDT today (11 am locally).
