Hellgate is not looking good. No fish for over 24 hours and now it's night - rain and storms predicted for tonight and an intruder attacked Louis for about 3 hours.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Chick #3, now deceased and chick #2 in the final stages before death. No food came to the nest, again. Intruders were attacking all morning.

It now appears Louis has been injured and is showing that with blood on his chest but at a distance. No one has seen him up close, yet. I believe he was trying to fish tonight but just could not see anything due to the river running so hard and fast. :cry: :cry: :cry: Only a miracle can save #2 now, if even that.

It is so sad what happened in this nest. I saw Iris look at the dead chickens. It looked as if she was saying goodbye. Will the parents stay there now, or can they go somewhere else where the conditions are better? I have only observed Ospreys since last year, but I have not seen such a drama. :cry:

Normally, they will stay in their nest area to keep the nest in order and keep away the intruders who may want to claim the nest for themselves. There is a problem now, that the intruder who did all or most of the attacking is coming back and fighting Louis every time Louis lands on the nest. As far as anyone knows, the intruder has not landed on the nest, yet. But he appears to be trying to take it over as his territory. The intruder may or may not want Iris as a mate, too. If so, he will try to make a bond with her. Hopefully, her bond with Louis is very strong and Louis can fight him off, enough, to make him leave.

The intruder has been to the nest at least once, today, already. He stood there and looked around and no other osprey such as Louis or Iris defended the nest. He's a cute osprey but he's not Louis. :cry:

OMG, what for a tragedy there!!! :shock:
I read about this nest in an american chat. It is so cruel, when animals must die of hunger. :cry: :cry:
What for a very difficult situation for this poor pair.
