I love that mom and DM2 are on the tree tonight. Looks like the mice aren't intimidated one bit, though! There are quite a few scurrying about the nest.

Great pics and gifs today!  I hadn't been in the live feed or forum for so long, and I couldn't believe how much they've built the nest up!  Those eaglets won't be able to get out of the egg cup until they're ready to fledge!  ;D

I noticed Mom has a dark feather showing on her head again.  A few years back she did also, and it was a big help to people trying to identify her from Dad.  But as the mods told us then, you can't count on that being a good ID for very long.   ;)

When the male-who-cannot-be-named flew down to the nest very early this morning I swear I saw the IR source move downwards! Like it had been trained on the 2 of them last night and then adjusted, with human help, to put the male in a spotlight of IR light when he flew to the nest. New feature? Do I need new pupils?

T40, I noticed that it got brighter on him too.  I actually thought it was like a flash or something.

I wasn't watching this morning, T40, so I don't know.  But, I do know that on the DNN nest there are 2 cams that each have their own IR and each IR can move with their respective cams.  That allows us to have IR light on what we call the Love Tree which is a tree to the left of the nest tree and is a place where our eagles frequently spend the night.  But, if they're on the nest there can be an IR light there.

Thanks, Ginger. That helped so much, I think I've got it. There are 2 cams pointing at the nest and the skywalk. (I'm leaving out any other cam(s) and angle(s).) One cam is a Point-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) with IR and the other one is either a PTZ or stationary cam with or without IR.

If you rewind about 10 hours 21+ minutes from this post, both eagles are in close-up on the skywalk. Their eyes look like headlights so the IR is on from somewhere. I believe this is the PTZ-IR cam.

Both eagles leave the skywalk an make it to the nest. There is a "dissolve" and the new view is a wide-angle of the skywalk and the nest and both eagles on the nest. I believe this is the 2nd cam because the close-up view of the skywalk didn't just pan out for a wider view; there was a cam switch.

Mom goes back to the skywalk, leaving the male on the nest. A car with its headlights on passes by the nest and then the magic happens. A circular spot of "light" moves downward and shines on the male in the nest. This definitely wasn't an IR "bloom." I believe this is the PTZ-with IR cam repositioning itself from the skywalk view to the nest view, illuminating the nest. The spotlight is now on the male in the nest and Mom is kinda in the dark on the skywalk.

So, are there any live eagles on the nest now so I can talk/think about something else? ;D

There was a malfunction with the system that caused the IR light source to be panning around continuously, it required a reboot to fix it, which took some time, but all is normal now.

From RRP's FB page:

Raptor Resource Project
4 hrs

D27 rang in the New Year about four miles from her natal nest! A mild winter tends to result in more abundant food during the lean season: rivers are open for fishing, animals that don't hibernate tend to forage in the (relatively) warm weather, and the folded hills and valleys in and around Decorah provide seemingly endless choices for perching and roosting. Happy 2020, D27 - and don't forget to write!

I've included a few images of the eagles we've tracked on their winter territories. So far, D1 and D27 (the eagles we have the most data on) have shown strong fidelity to their summer and winter ranges, although D1 tended to wander a little more, winter or summer, than any other Decorah eagle we've tracked. Food availability is a very important driver of eagle behavior - non-territorial eagles tend to move when the food source dries up - but it isn't the only driver. Eagles are individuals! Some are homebodies and others like to move!

If you'd like to explore the travels of any of the eagles we've tracked, go to https://www.raptorresource.org/learning-tools/eagle-map/. To learn more about the eagle tracking project, follow this link: https://www.raptorresource.org/2019/04/08/satellite-tracking-decorah-iowa-fledgling-bald-eagles-2011-2018/?fbclid=IwAR3m5WvY2r0SOtcAwsyaPpjWW_DdIbxJ_yfM7YTIXEsMmS5nuSvYvHYepoQ

To make your own map, go here: https://www.raptorresource.org/learning-tools/eagle-map/, select 'January' from the 'Explore Travel by Month' drop-down, and click submit! D27 spent January of 2018 a little south of Decorah, which is why she's not on the northern range map for that year.

Total winter range in January for every eagle we tracked in January of any year since 2012. Their ranges can be large, but once they find a spot, they often stay where the eating is good! We don't really know what causes long trips like D27's jump in 2018.

Detail of southern range in January for every eagle we've tracked. Whatever else is happening, we know they like rivers and hills! Rivers provide food and a hilly landscape provides some shelter from wind - an important consideration when windchill can be well below zero!

Just realized how close D27 was to N1 on 12/22/19 around 11a.m. Mom was on the Y late that afternoon. Hmm... Adults just had to have seen D27. Wonder just how many visitors are in the area at any one time during the non-breeding season.

T40 thank you once again for the heads up on D27's latest December travels.  8)
If Mom was around the 'Y' about 11 AM on the 22nd I'm sure she knew one of the 'kids' was up by the Trout Creek 'river bend' cliffs.

Maybe D27 found the Venison Sous Vide upstream a couple of days before Mom & DM2 did.   ;D ;)

1st off what a screen capture LisaG.

Eagle love is in the air.

D27 I'm in awe and just plain jealous of your water journey.

As a lover of all things aquatic that reside or bloom from our Continents rivers fast, slow, deep, shallow, narrow, wide, muddy, tea colored or crystal clear.

I do to this day enjoy all that exist in on or around the great chain of wildlife that depends on our Nations water.

To the great delight of my dearly departed Mother that 1st introduced me to where the real critter action was I've seen some of the best of it.

Thank you Mom.
The NJ Pine Barrens still to this day has some of the best water on the planet that I've ever tasted.

I've been grayed and nicked from vistas on high a bit but Ive always been drawn to the bottom lands where the rivers run and the eagles fly.

A Tale of the Tape .... at the Hatchery Nest
by Sherri Elliott

The Decorah Eagles nest this morning gives a great look at the depth already this season as DM2 and Mom pause work to track their territory. There are two things I look at every view .... a lovely heart shape circled in the bark of the cottonwood tree, as well as the diamond shape in the bark which I have always used as a tape measure.

During the N2B starter platform and cam install in 2015, the bottom of the diamond was way above Neil's shoulder as he knelt in the nest. Over successive seasons we've watched the amendments rise for measurement as parents prep for egg lay and hatch, and then we watch how it eventually compresses as growing and rambunctious eagles send crib rails scattering and trample down the tarmac while hoppersizing and wingersizing. Start gathering screenshots for your own comparisons as branch and stick deliveries, as well as fluffy bedding, is being brought in multiple times daily.

The last guesstimate of the Decorah Eagles hatchery nest 11/2019 was an overall size of 6ft x7ft with a depth of 6.5ft and weighed approximately 1,606 lbs.

I don't find it odd, based on my own personal observations and screen shots that I have taken.  Back on Dec 21, he was last seen on cam with mom on the skywalk in the afternoon, and then not seen on cam again until the morning of Dec 23rd.  Maybe he needs a lil time to himself  :)

He sure looks like he got spooked.  Was it him or Mom that did that not too long ago?

Decorah Eagles- Something Spooked DM2 Off The Skywalk
Around 7:00 P.M. tonight Mom & DM2 were in for the night on the skywalk.
Mom had her head tucked in and DM2 was above her, when suddenly he got spooked and flew off in a flash.

Post by: LisaG1967 on January 10, 2020, 06:33:26 AM
Thanks for the video, Lori  :)

Mom came down from the skywalk about 6:25 am nest time, and poked around in the nest for a bit, then looked over both sides as if she was looking for something then went back up on the skywalk.

That looks like a red-tailed hawk to me. I don't see a belly band, but everything else about it says RTH and it could either have a pale band or be sitting in such a way that we can't it. RTH are also pretty common in Decorah. Coops are as well, but they are smaller and more slender. I'm just going to throw this link in. RTH are buteos and Coops are accipiters: https://www.raptorresource.org/2019/06/28/identifying-birds-of-prey-in-flight/.

Love the photos of eagles through  the tangled branches. I'm always amazed that they can get into such close quarters. But maybe the distances are distorted somewhat.  Visiting Decorah is on my bucket list.

Where is D27? Brett writes: "D27 moved south a few miles beyond her typical territory on January 6, but returned the next day to the south end of her usual range." January 6 was a relatively warm day with just a smidgen of precipitation and very little wind. Eagles may be able to see other eagles soaring at a distance of between 14 and 40 miles, depending on weather and altitude. In a high soar, D27 could presumably see all the way to the Mississippi River! Thirteen miles - as far south as she got on her excursion - would barely be a stretch for her eyes or large, powerful wings. Maybe she saw some interesting eagle activity, or maybe she just felt like moving. Either way, we wish her nothing but the best. Stay safe, D27 - and thanks so much for writing!

A million thanks to Brett and the staff of Eagle Valley for sharing their expertise, knowledge, and maps! To explore the travels of all the eagles we've tracked, visit our interactive maps at https://www.raptorresource.org/learning-tools/eagle-map/.

Lisa - Beautiful screen caps! And you're right about the cam ops - and the cams aren't too shabby either! ;D

BL -Thanks for the SOAR update. Happy D32 has friends but I'd sure like to know how his "ankle" is doing.

T40, from this part of the comment from SOAR "The juveniles are making laps in the 20x60" I'm assuming D32's ankle has healed OK.

If he's making multiple landings and perching after flying back & forth in the 20x60 flight pen I take that to mean his "leg" must be doing OK.
Fingers crossed he can be released back to the wild in the Spring!

Thanks BL for the reminder. Actually, the last I heard was the 100' flight pen was fully booked and not available for them to move to, even if they were all ready to go. ;)

Trying to get a little caught up on the Decorah nest and activities.  GREAT pics, gifs, and videos!  I love the video from two days ago where DM2 was flying around Mom several times, then landed and snuggled close to her before taking off again.  You can really tell the difference in their 'relationship' this season compared to last.  Looking forward to 3 beautiful eaglets and (hopefully) a normal fledge for all of them.  I'll pop in when I can.  We're getting down to the wire with the 'move', so very little free time, even in my non-working hours.  :(

Look who decided to Phone Home after about 6 months of no 'pings', D24 on 01/12/20 about 6 miles south of N2B.  8) 8) 8)
D24 fledged on 6/11/16 from N2B (2016 hatch year Male, 5th banded & transmitted Decorah eagle).
 
The last location ping received from D24 was on 06/20/2019 just inside Canada about 350 miles due north of the nest.  :o

Only the wind knows where all he's been & what he's seen in between ...  :D

Awesome to "hear" from D24, and so close to N2B. So any thoughts on where he may have been during the time there were no pings? Is there an "out of range" condition for the transmitter?  Found a couple of screen captures from D24's early days.

Amazing how 3 1/2 yrs. later, D24 must still know where he came from.  I know we've been told that they most likely would not know their parents years later, but if they remember the location they fledged from, you'd think they'd retain some memory of the parents.  Especially Super Mom!  (Sort of like the movie Born Free, where Elsa the lion still remembered her human parents years later.)

Thanks, BL!

TPA may be right!  They may have crossed flight paths around the same time.  If not, they just keep missing each other.  How neat that they both are so close in vicinity to each other and to their natal nest!

You know, I thought I saw a blur of something when it took off, but the camera followed its flight and I didn't see anything after that initial blur, so I thought I must have not seen what I thought I saw.  ???

I'll swallow a Bald Eagle feather whole, the wrong way, if there wasn't, is or has not been some sort of sibling cahoots and interaction going on between these two in Winneshiek County Iowa.  :)

I'm really loving the idea that the intermittent GPS'r that D24 (Male 2016) sports could meet up with her junior D27 sister (Female 2017).

Thanks for the info TPA!  She looked tired and hungry, so I'm glad they didn't chase her away immediately.  Course, there wasn't much there for her to pick on.  Hope it warms up some for all our wildlife friends!

I agree with NW, she looked tired and hungry.  I also thought maybe she could be older, but she may just have had that tired look.

Just happy to know they are that close to one another and the natal nest!  I know some folks didn't like putting the transmitters on them, but we've gained so much knowledge from that.  Thanks for keeping us updated on their travels!

Looks like the intruder we had a few days ago?

Only caught part of this, so not sure if Mom and DM2 were 'horsing' around, or if they were chasing an intruder.  Played it back a couple of times and it looked like they may have been in pursuit, but not sure.  Anyone else see them chasing someone?

The cold weather has had Mom and DM2 hunkering down to conserve energy. They finally returned this evening, making a brief visit to their snowy nest before flying off to perch nearby. If the eagles follow their usual schedule, they will lay eggs in mid-to-late February.

Lori, that gave me a good laugh this morning!  I'm originally from the Chicago area and there was a radio DJ by the name of Dr. Demento who was only on late Sunday night.  This was one of his signature songs and has stuck in my brain since 1970something!  8)

Not familiar with those stations, Puff, but this would have been on one of the main rock-type stations at that time.  I want to say WLS's radio station, but not sure after all these years.  All I know is, I looked forward to the Dr. Demento show because it was different and funny.  His show wasn't like main stream radio - it was meant to play funny, even outrageous (for the time) music, which is why they had him in that late Sunday night time slot.  I just googled him and here is a link to an interesting article about him and when his show ended:

In that link I gave Puff it had a few of his more famous 'ditties' at the bottom of the article.  You should listen to Shaving Cream.  It's completely innocent, but funny as heck.  He was also one of the first people to air Weird Al!

A New Bill Aims to Counter the Rollback of a Bedrock Bird Law

In winter, especially, birds seek open water such as the trout hatchery's retention pond. Tragically, open pits of wastewater and oil are often, mistakenly chosen by birds which is usually a lethal decision. The new MBTA bill would restore protections for wildlife against hazards like this and I urge you to do all you can to ensure the bill's passage. Thank you!

Pardon my ignorance, T40, but what can we do to ensure the bill's passage?   In the past, I've e-mailed my state's representatives and senators, but then I heard that has little to no impact because it never reaches the intended person.  I've also heard the best way is to call their office and talk to their assistant, but do so often because they will get tired of fielding the calls and will mention it to their 'boss'.  I think that info came from an article in Reader's Digest a few years back.  Any thoughts?

NW - Great question! I do what I can, like sending emails to my legislators, my own or the "robo" kind from interested non-profits with some clout like Audubon. Calling is very effective if you're polite. ;) It's like volunteering to take a survey because they keep tabs on phone calls. Phone calls also get a little bit more attention because it's more "difficult" to call rather than email/text. Office visits are the gold standard even if you only get to talk to an assistant. (I know that's out of the question for most of us.) During breaks, Representatives and Senators usually hold Town Hall-style meetings with constituents. That's a great opportunity to get heard and be persuasive and maybe influence/educate other voters. Contact matters! Any contact. If they don't hear from us, they won't know we care and are watching what they do.

There was some eagle chatter in the distance, and then DM2 arrives on the nest looking in defense mode.

There was a slow flyover during this exchange.

The cam kept freezing up, but an eagle flew over the nest and it sounded like it landed on the skywalk.  Not sure if it was Mom, cause you can see another one in the distance.  DM2 took off and then came back to the nest with some nesting material.

Starlings are accomplished mimics. They pick up sounds from other starlings and song birds but also from people and inanimate objects. Their vocalizations include whistles, whizzes, rattles and pops.

Did you hear the starling mimicking our eagles this morning. So funny and awesome.

Welcome to the club!  ;D  The first time I drove down the main road that takes you to the hatchery my eyes filled with tears because I couldn't believe I was actually at the place I had been watching for years.  People that live in Decorah might not feel this way about it, but it's my little slice of heaven.  And if the eaglets fledge normally this year, it's so much fun to see them at the hatchery trying to get fish out of one of the runs, or swooping into the retaining pond.  You will just love it!  Only 5 1/2 months til then, but who's counting?!  ;)

Lisa, your last set of pics shows Mom's right eye close up and if I'm not mistaken, it looks like her eye is 'weeping' or draining, like it's infected.  Maybe someone should mention it to Dr. Laura?  Not sure there is anything she can do without actually catching Mom and examining her, but the eye doesn't appear to be getting better.

I don't know if it is actually draining or weeping, but it does look like its crusty.  Remember last season, she had that mark on that eye that looked like a bruise or dirt?  I wonder if that just like never healed right or something.

I believe the bruise she had last year was from a nighttime owl attack.  I watched the footage of it and the owl struck her on that side of her face and knocked her slightly off balance.  Everyone wondered if it was a stain from something she ate, but I felt that it was a bruise and it did take a long time to fade, which tells you how hard it hit her.  But I'm not sure that is what is causing this now, because her eye has been just fine all this time.  This could have happened if she got poked in the eye by a stick accidentally, etc.  Probably when she was wrestling DM2 for stick placement in the nest. LOL  Hope it heals on its own pretty soon because I would imagine it could throw her depth perception off or cause her to be off balance.

Just watched Tulsa's video of Mom on the Y today and although her eye was closed most of the time, just before she flew off she opened her right eye wide and it didn't look bad.  So hopefully whatever it is/was has started to heal.

Thanks for the info, Lori.  Tulsa's video said that RRP is aware of it and will be releasing a statement later today about it.

 ;DxPosted to RRP's Facebook page

"We know that everyone has some concerns about Mom's right eye. We first started getting questions on January 20, when sharp-eyed watchers noticed that she appeared to be keeping her right eye mostly or completely shut. We took a look and noticed the same thing, but couldn't determine the source of the problem. Her eye wasn't bloody and she was behaving like a normal territorial adult eagle. She got some rabbit fur stuck in the upper outer corner of her right eye on January 14 and appeared to have ice building up on her 'eyelashes' or rimal bristles, which could have contributed to her eye irritation.

Our camera operators finally got an opportunity to get good photos of Mom's open right eye today and we sent them to Dr. Laura. She confirmed that there was some kind of issue, although she doesn't have a way of diagnosing it or determining its severity without an exam. Whatever the cause, Mom's eye is clearly irritated and she's reacting in the same way we might: closing her outer eyelids, blinking her eye, and sometimes rubbing her head on her shoulder. Keeping her tender eye closed will aid in healing and help protect it from wind and cold, while her nictitating membrane will keep it moist and help swipe any material that may still be stuck.

Given that Mom is still behaving normally and spending her time at the tops of trees, there is nothing we can do. As the videos below shows, Mom is capable of using both eyes and can fly, land on the nest, hop-flap up to and perch on the Skywalk, and move materials around the nest. We'll continue to monitor her and collect reports from local observers while we wait to see what happens moving forward.

January 23, 2020: An early visit to the nest - https://youtu.be/93D2Lw8NJgM
January 23, 2020: More Mom: https://youtu.be/4CSqSm-eB5A

Label for photo #1: Mom may have some rabbit fur caught in the upper left corner of her eye. This cap was taken by Sherri Elliott on January 14. The weather got extremely cold after this cap was taken and we didn't see much of Mom or DM2 on the nest for several days.

Label for photo #2: Did Mom lose her eye? No, although it's clearly sore. Eagles tend to keep their eyes open, which means we aren't used to eyes completely shut. She's shut them here, protecting her sore eye from wind, cold weather, and general irritation. This is her closed, feathered eyelid and not an injury.

Label for photo #3: Another look at both of eyes. Remember, her right eye is sore, but she's facing us, which means we see her sore eye as her left eye. It's clearly irritated, but still works: she's seeing through it, flying, landing without crashing, hop-flapping to the Skywalk, and picking up and moving nest materials.

Label for photo #4: Sherri Elliott passed this along to remind all of us what eaglet eyelids look like.

Great gifs of the starlings, Lucky, and (ugh!) the snowfall, Lori! Hope Mom was hunkered down someplace out of the weather when that was coming down.  Love hearing the various sounds the starlings make!

Thanks, pel, for the RRP FB post on Mom's eye!  I mentioned yesterday that even though she keeps it closed or half closed most of the time right now, when she took off from the Y yesterday, her right eye was wide open and if you didn't know something was going on with it, you wouldn't have guessed she had a problem.  So hopefully it's healing slowly but surely.  We'd all love to see her completely healed before she starts laying eggs in February.  :-*

Mine too!  Everything is so built up where I live, you have to drive a ways to see farms or even wide open spaces.  I liked the prints in the snow down by the water...probably the deer we see from time to time.

From RRP's FB page:

Raptor Resource Project
20 hrs

D27 sent us an airmail this week! As Brett said, she in engaged in typical meandering around her natal area. Her farthest point north this month was up near Bluffton: less than a mile from Bob's old farm/breeding project and nine miles distant from her natal nest. Her farthest point south was down near Eldorado, 13 miles distant from her natal nest. D27 spent most of her time in and around Decorah and passed near the nest three times: once on January 3, once on January 16, and once on January 18. Unfortunately, she didn't get quite close enough for us to see her on cam, although we are hoping to go out looking for her sometime in February. Good luck D27! Stay warm and don't forget to write!

To explore the travels of all the eagles we've tracked, visit our interactive maps at https://www.raptorresource.org/learning-tools/eagle-map/. A thousand thanks to Brett Mandernack and the staff of Eagle Valley for sharing their expertise, knowledge, and maps with us!

Lisa, thanks for capturing the close-up of Mom's eye. I'm hoping that all it needs is a Tincture of Time to heal.
LORIDAVIS, your gifs are always very impressive. I don't even know how to post a picture.
I've been watching for years, so you would think I'd know how eagles furnish a nest when it is covered with snow. Would someone please refresh my memory?

You're welcome, lil  :)

In one of RRP's Facebook post from Jan 22, 2019, it states this about snow in the nest.
Tonight?s Nestflix: Snowstorations! Mom and DM2 have a lot of snow removal to do after a storm dropped roughly ten inches in the Decorah area on January 18! They have been dealing with the snow by trampling it, covering it, digging in it, and brushing from the nest as they come and go.

lil - What I've been waiting for is grass/hay, but the eagles can't easily find those supplies without a little more melting. DM2 tried his best this morning (he's a keeper!) and brought in some dark something-or-other (see Lori's gif). Covering the snow in darker colored foliage will help melt the snow underneath and add another cushioning layer to the nest. And the rails are high enough that adding a few sticks to them is easy, even in the snow.

T40, thanks so much for giving us the 411 on D27's travels!  She just loves that area, doesn't she?  And thanks also for the article/video from KWWL.  I like how they mentioned the Decorah eagles, how the number of eagle sightings has increased significantly, and to warn people to give eagles their space due to nesting season coming up.  Very nice!

Thanks Lisa and Lori for the great pics and gifs of Mom!  Puzzling with her eye - at times it's open and looks great, and other times closed and obviously irritating her.  I did notice that just before she takes off, her eye is wide open, so she's able to keep it open when it really matters.  Thanks to RRP and Dr. Laura for keeping us posted on whatever they can.

MpMom, don't know how you got those 3 pics in one frame, but very neat!  I see Lori posted the same things a little later, so might be something the camera people did?  Lots of good pics this morning!

Thanks to everyone who contributes, whether it's pics, gifs, or comments.  If it wasn't for comments, we might not have known as quickly about Mom's eye problem.  So thank you to ALL who contribute.  It does take a village.  :)

I noticed that too about her eye, NW.  She looks like she kind of closes it more, maybe when the wind blows directly on it.

Fantastic s-caps tig, Lisa, MpMom, and love the p-in-p gif Lori!  I know we are all hoping and praying that Mom's eye will get better soon.  I hope she's not in too much discomfort or pain.  I know when I've had eye infections that drained like hers is, it could be very irritating. 

And a big thank you to the camera people who give us all such great shots to work with!  Unsung heroes is what you are.  :-*

MpMom, your first pic from yesterday with DM2 flying into the nest with food for Mom was just awesome!  Great catch!

Lisa & tig, love your b&w shots from early morning - they show how affectionate they have become.  I'd say the pair bonding is a raging success!

Lori, I really liked that last gif yesterday, where they were both working on the nest separately, instead of Mom trying to do it all!  She's had to be so strong and resilient, it's hard to turn that off when you have a mate that wants to help.

This was kind of odd, and maybe I didn't see it correctly, so if anyone else caught it, I'd love your feedback on it.  The pics below show Mom on a tree in the background from the nest tree that DM2 is sitting in.  She goes to take off, and it almost appears as if she got caught up in the tree branches and looped underneath a branch before righting herself.  She then flew toward the nest, but went under somewhere out of sight.  A short time later DM2 took off from the nest.  The reason I wanted others to view it and give input is because I hope her eye issue is not affecting her flight.  (I rewound and watched it a few times.)

Thanks NW! They definitely seem to be more in sync this year.

I wonder if Mom was trying to break off a branch and just wasn't successful.

I hadn't considered that - very possible!  I'd prefer that to her having any difficulties.  Thanks tig!

Nice pics tig & MpMom!

I know what you're saying about Mom's eye MpMom.  Most of us have pets and when they have an issue, we have a vet examine them.  But Mom is not our pet, she's a beautiful wild creature, and unless her eye affected her ability to fly, there's not much we can do except help monitor her activities and send out positive, hopeful thoughts.  We're lucky that Dr. Laura is a board member and is apprised of any unusual circumstances with 'our' eagles, and that RRP is carrying out Bob's legacy of caring for all creatures.

Eagle-Duck is Horst who had been here for 9 years like me. He passed away a couple of weeks ago. He was amazing with computer graphics. He was always posting Decorah pics until he became ill.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that.  I didn't recognize the nickname. 

So you've been watching the eagles since 2011...a lot of changes in those years.  I started in 2014.  RRP is lucky to have dedicated fans such as yourself.  The person that got me involved in it stopped watching shortly after I started.  Ya gotta love the eagles, right?  :-*

I loved Dad also - he had infinite patience with Mom and was an excellent father to his offspring.  It took me a while to warm up to DM2, but now I'm so happy that Mom has a steady mate and they seem to have hit their groove.  ;D  I know how much everyone loved Dad, and I'll be just as heartbroken if anything happens to Mom. 

I work for a real estate investment company and the person that introduced me to the Decorah eagles worked in the same type of business, so we would ask each other about different things related to our businesses.  When we switched to QB, she was my 'go to' person if I had questions.  I think she watched other animal streaming sites and wasn't as involved in just the eagles, as I became.  I don't think she ever participated in chat or forum.

Good Morning RRP

I've declared a sweet day for us.

Read up on the missives from yesterday.  My replies:  NW, since you asked, I saw mention of American Eagle and watched it.  At the end of the broadcast, down at the bottom, was mention of a group called Raptor Resource Project.  So I said to myself, self check it out.  January 2011 was the date of total "Raptor".  Fell into the grandeur of the Decorah experience. 

BTW One of those who helped me a lot at the start was Alice Witt.  She said she doesn't even check in that often any more.  Life and health keeps her occupied more than she'd like.  Just exchanged birthday greetings; we share the exact same birthday and birth year.  Further investigation proved that we're not twins; different cities.  She also lives in IL just north of O'Hare.  I'm south of O'Hare.  It's a total shame that we've never had a get-together meeting.

With the devotees here how could you not be "hooked".  MP  the use of little man has not been lost on me.  Neat!  OK by me.  And then there's the recognition given to us by BL  Mom D thanks you for the thoughtful aid of the patch.  LOL   That's what I adore -- we're here to help each other and contribute even more to the experience.

Finally, laughed at ice-fishers.  Not exactly a good example of "getting away from it all".  I have no problem with snow or temps.  I like winter more than summer.
 But, they must have an addiction to fresh fish don't ya think?

P

MpMom, Lisa and Lori - thanks for the beautiful pics and gifs of the GBH.  We have one that must have a nest nearby because I'll see it when I walk around my subdivision, near the creek that runs behind it.  I took a video of it once, but it was too far away to make out clearly.  Lisa is right - they are very graceful birds.  Nice shots of DM2 and Mom too!

Fantastic s-caps MpMom, Lisa, and T40 (love your captions!)!

Does it seem like Mom's eye is getting worse?  JMO but I thought she was opening it more a few days ago, or at the very least, squinting (for lack of a better word).  Now it's closed shut most of the time it seems.  I know there's nothing we can do about it, but I still hate to think she may be in pain or lose sight in that eye eventually.  She's a tough old bird and has survived a lot - just wanted her remaining years to be good ones.  :-*

Thank you, NW and T40....I too agree with NW...love your captions!

I noticed that Mom had it a lil more wide open when she was on the nest today.  I'm still thinking when the wind blows directly in the eye she closes it more.

A little OT, but I'm just now catching up on D27's latest tracking 'pings'.

D27's January 2020 pings up to the 22nd.

I kind of found the 3rd image amusing, D27 hit the 'air breaks' heading south bound almost right at the Winneshiek county line. 

I'm pretty sure BE's don't know anything about us 2 footer boundaries drawn on a map, but then again maybe they do.  ???  :D

I have been scrolling back, enjoying the pics (funny, helpful captions) and gifs because I just don't seem to have much luck seeing them live. I am also relieved to see that other folks are as perilously close to the border of the NWZ as I am. I do Trust The Eagles, but Mother Nature plays hardball. Mom has proven that she is tough and resourceful, but she deserves a "no drama" breeding season. I take heart with every pic and gif that shows her managing well.

EAGLE EYE
Feb 2, 20202
Your pics are great!  Thank you!
I scrolled back to Jan 30 and didnt see this posted.
The way she buries her face in the nestbowl, junk coulda got in her eye

Everyone is concerned about Mom Decorah?s right eye.
January 30  FROM RRP... NEW UPDATE ON MOM'S EYE
Mom's eye with notes from Dr. Laura...
Thanks to our camera operators' diligent work and John's high-powered cameras, we got some excellent photos of Mom's right eye today! We forwarded them to Dr. Laura, who said:

"I think that what we are seeing is a scar on the cornea; the cornea becomes opaque instead of clear when it's been damaged. It does appear slightly raised, which is a bit unusual, so she could also have a foreign object (a small piece of bark, a stick, a grass seed, or some other object) in her eye. She may also have a granuloma on her cornea (a thick whitish tissue that is a bird's response to infection). If it is a scar without a continued underlying foreign body or infection, it will gradually subside...but don't expect that to happen quickly. I also think her eye looks more comfortable than when we first saw the injury last week."

We truly appreciate Dr. Laura taking time out of her busy schedule to look at Mom's eye and it is beyond wonderful to hear that she believes it is looking a little better...but please note that this is an educated observation under limited circumstances and not an official diagnosis. We have our talons crossed for Mom's recovery. Go, Mom!

Sherri, Tulsa, and Camop Coqui sent us before and after images and videos of Mom's eye. We've shared them below so that everyone can compare them. You should also check out Tulsa's video, which shows Mom's eye today:

Well, I guess I am officially in the worry zone (I am a natural worry wart anyway). Hardly see mom at all and there is very little nest work being done. When someone is there, all they do is just stand there a bit or move a stick or two. Very different from last year! Shouldn't this time be very busy for them getting the nest ready? I'm probably all wrong on this but I just can't help it. I will try to be positive though, since negativity doesn't help at all. Love all your awesome pics and gifs that get posted!

Buzbee, I didn't see Mom yesterday but I'm sure she's fine. They look like they have the rails in pretty good shape and have been working on the fluff. I think they'll be fine. I'm trying to stay in the NWZ!

buzbee, I didn't see Mom yesterday either.  I sometimes notice that when she does not show up on cam for a couple of days in a row, I'm assuming she is off consuming energy.

Thank you tig and Lisa! It just seems the past few weeks have not been the norm. It seems there should be more activity than there has been since it's close to egg laying time. Whenever I get worried like this, they seem to come through and all is well. I hope it's like that again! I don't mean to sound so negative!! I need to work on my patience!  ::) ;) ;D

I bet there is boots on the ground keeping a lookout. 

DM2 does seem like he is looking for her, but I also have wondered if there maybe an intruder around, and if he and Mom are protecting their area.

Besides this new young handsome male, DM2, seems to have this crib rail & nest bowl preparation well in, er, um talon.  ;D

I'll just kick back on the maple, store up some fluids for my calcium, rest me sore eye and just enjoy my beautiful realm.   :) :) :)

I'm thinking Mom is just taking some "me time" in this nice mild Winter weather before she has to hunker down on her eggs.   8)

Besides this new young handsome male, DM2, seems to have this crib rail & nest bowl preparation well in, er, um talon.  ;D

I'll just kick back on the maple, store up some fluids for my calcium, rest me sore eye and just enjoy my beautiful realm.   :) :) :)

Well said BrokenLug and I agree with you 100%.  Get your rest, we love you Mom! We ❤️ you too DM2!  ;)

Maybe Mom & DM2 are nest-prepping smarter this year.  Last year (and up until recently), the squirrels stole all the beautiful corn husks.  Maybe DM2 will bring Mom talons full of new corn husks as she nears egg laying time.

Thanks to Tulsa for the great video capturing Mom's return home! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaLJtPlcEIs&feature=youtu.be  At about 4:30 Mom sticks her foot down & I wonder if she was trying to get one of the mice that were frolicking before she flew down to the nest.  :)

Thank you tig and Lisa! It just seems the past few weeks have not been the norm. It seems there should be more activity than there has been since it's close to egg laying time. Whenever I get worried like this, they seem to come through and all is well. I hope it's like that again! I don't mean to sound so negative!! I need to work on my patience!  ::) ;) ;D

For what it's worth, buzbee, they have been working on the nest for quite some time now.  It just might be pretty close to the way they want it by now.  We were joking a few weeks ago that the eaglets might not be able to get out of the nest bowl until they're ready to fledge! LOL

They've also had a couple/few snows that kept them from working as much on the nest because they had to hunker down to conserve energy during the cold spells.  I'm more concerned about Mom's eye than I am on the progress of the nest building.  They've been at it for a couple of months now, and might just feel it's okay.   ;)

You don't sound negative, Buzbee, just worried. I try not to but I worry too. Mom might be on a mini vacay before egg laying! She's got DM2 bringing in some more nest materials!

And to add to your comments tig, even when Mom is there, she often goes up the skywalk and lets DM2 do the work.  So she might be staying out of the weather now due to her eye, and is trusting the 'home building' to her honey.  :)

Haven't been back in since last Friday when I left work. 

Regarding Friday's posts, love the snow gifs of DM2, Lori!  Very pretty. Also liked the one of DM2 from that evening that looked like he was yelling at the camera!  :)

MpMom and Lisa - great pics from that evening also!  Mom and DM2 were warning/yelling at somebirdie!  Looks like you caught the culprit in your shot tigBL, love those updates on our girl D27!  And I totally agree with your assessment of the situation with Mom yesterday.

Beautiful sunset pics tig and MpMom

Great shots of Mom yesterday TPA!  You know, I've noticed she seems to keep that eye open more when it's dark out - I wonder if the light hurts it?

UPDATE:  Well, shuck my corn!  Saw all the wonderful pics from today and realized Mom's eye seems to be healed! Woo-hoo!

Thanks for all the s-caps everyone!  It's invaluable to folks like me that can't get on every day.  Love it!  :-*

We know everyone is worried about Mom's right eye! You'll be glad to know that it looked much better this morning. Last week, Dr. Laura told she thought we were seeing a scar on Mom's cornea, since an eagle's cornea becomes opaque when it's been damaged. She also told us that it Mom's eye would become clearer as her injury healed. I've included a capture that shows us how much Mom's eye has cleared/healed since we posted about it last week.

Thanks for watching, caring, learning, and sharing - and a special thanks to our camera operators and moderators for passing along these captures! #GetWellSoon

Mom on February 3, 2020. Her eye has cleared quite a bit, although it looks like she could still have just a little bit of scarring on her cornea.

February 3, 2020: Another look at Mom's eye. Wild eagles face a variety of risks. Although eagles and other raptors can live with just one eye - Dad's first mate was a one-eyed eagle - we are very glad to see her on the mend! A known territory, a steady supply of food, and an attentive mate all helped Mom as her eye healed.

Thanks for passing that on T40!  Yes, her eye looks SOOOO much better I could do backflips!  Okay, maybe not backflips, but definitely jumping for joy!  It would have been difficult for her to take care of (hopefully) 3 little dandelion heads!  But then again, she's Super Mom.

I'm having one of THOSE days.  :(  Just commented on several posts and inadvertently X'd out of everything and lost my post.  Let's try this again!

GREAT pics Lisa, tig, T40, and MpMom (I agree with Lisa - loved that pic of them titled Sitting Together)!

EA, your Branch Intensity shot is a keeper!  That look would scare the bejesus out of anybody!

T40, your video from 2011 was hilarious!  That clutch was E1, E2 (aka Diva), and E3 but only two were in the video.  Had one dispersed already?

Missed all the action today - we're heading to the home (literally!) stretch. I'll be working from home in 24 days...but who's counting?!  ;D

Amazing how quickly her eye healed, isn't it?  With how bad it had been looking, I would never have thought she'd be completely back to normal from one day to the next.  She truly is SUPER MOM!  (Can't wait to get my t-shirt.  Supposed to be here any day now)

lilbirdz, the earliest egg laying for Mom Decorah was Feb 17th.  Last year was Feb 22nd with a new mate.  We will all be waiting to see what happens this year.  The nest is looking good.  We are hopefully close to another miracle.

Thank you to everyone for the beautiful captures, GIFs, and information.  Such a wonderful sharing of information among eagle lovers.

Catching up on the last couple of days posts...

BL, love that nest history chart!  The color coding makes it easy to find what you're looking for.  Thanks!!

MpMom, tig, and Lisa - great action shots!  Lisa, your last pic from yesterday's 9:10 a.m. post - it looks like a heart between them.  How neat!   :-*

Lori, so glad to see your gifs!  Missed them that one day you weren't 'on'.

T40, great capture of the RTH!  S/he seems to be hanging around the nest area a lot lately.

EA, really like the dual tree sitting pics!  We really DO have the best camera ops!

Lori, love those last 3 gifs!  I guess he "uh-hem" found her!  ;D

The latest greatest weather forecast model prognostication as of ..
Check out the NDFD as it updates.
It will update hourly just as the weather does, and it will get more fine tuned as the weather 'event' gets closer to you in time & location.

IA: https://maps.weatherbell.com/view/model/ndfd-conus?d=iowa&p=total_snow_10to1
MN: https://maps.weatherbell.com/view/model/ndfd-conus?d=minnesota&p=total_snow_10to1
US Regions> Upper Midwest: https://maps.weatherbell.com/view/model/ndfd-conus?d=mw&p=total_snow_10to1

Use the time slider @ the top of the map.   8)

At the present (time of my post) the snowfall forecast @ N2B is 6-7 inches of snow.

I learn something new every time I visit the forum:

According to the Farmers' Almanac, northeastern Native American tribes referred to the second full moon of winter as the Snow Moon because of February's heavy snow.
This month's moon is also being called a supermoon by some experts, which means it will be one of the biggest moons of 2020 and will look especially large when rising and setting.

Just catching up after not being on for almost a week! (Withdrawal was setting in  ;D )

Well, with all that copulation we should be seeing those eggs fairly soon.  :)

Thanks for the updates on our girl D27, BL & T40!  I would venture a guess that when she's mature enough, she'll find a fella and settle down in the Decorah area.  She never seems to venture too far away from the nest...when she's not vacationing up north, that is.  ;)

Wonderful pics tig, Lisa, MpMom, TPA, buzbee, and EA

Lori, love ALL your gifs, but especially the one from the 8th with Mom falling asleep at night on the skywalk with lights twinkling in the background.

T40, felt a little 'pang' in my heart when you mentioned Dad was the melter-in-chief and would stay on the egg cup until it was sufficiently warm and melted.  He was one of a kind, wasn't he?  :'(

Lori, saw Tulsa's videos today of DM2 not sharing his squirrel meal - wonder if that was Mr. Lucky?  If it was, he ain't lucky no more! LOL

Those moon shots were spectacular!  Missed Mom and DM2 this past week, and ya'll!  Can't wait until this move is over!!  Until then, many thanks to everyone who contributes pics, gifs, and comments.  It really helps you get caught up when you can't get on every day. You guys are the BEST!!

Thanks Lisa!  Saw your comment on hoping the maple is still there when we attend the ATF this year.  I would love it if it was, but something tells me it'll be gone as soon as the weather is warm enough for it to be taken down.  :(

But that's okay - I'm sure Mom will just move one tree over.  ;D

Thanks tig for your kind words.

Lisa, love the sunrise pic!  I always say Decorah has the best sunrises and sunsets, as well as the Flyway.

MpMom, I've attached a pic I took of Mom & Dad on Valentine's Day 2018...their last one together.  It's probably not as good as Horst's but I treasure it because it was just two months later that we lost Dad.

TPA, I like that pic of Mom & DM2 from last Valentine's Day because it shows a heart between them.  :-*

Great pics Lisa and tig - hard to catch them landing or taking off without it being a little blurry, but you both did it beautifully!

Lori, your Decorah shimmy gif of DM2 is priceless!  ALL of your gifs are great!

D32 is ready for release once area ponds are open AND there is a stretch of good weather. No, we're not sure when that will be. Yes, D32 will also have a soft release at SOAR.

Why would "they" cut down the Maple Tree? I know it is dead, but it is a great perch for the eagles near the hatchery. Is the tree a hazard if it falls?  Dead trees provide nesting holes for woodpeckers and other birds, and insects as food.  But we know all that.  Bummer.

I would think there would be some way to stabilize it so it wouldn't fall. So sad to see it go. Maybe that's why we haven't seen them at all today, the trucks scared them off for a while perhaps?

RRP just posted the following on Facebook:

? As many of you already know, The Iowa DNR took the perch tree down today. We had recommended a fall removal, but that was not possible. The DNR was compliant with federal law regarding work near an eagle's nest, held a public meeting on the tree removal, and took a great deal of care to get the tree down and taken away as quickly as possible. RRP Board Member Dave Kester monitored the situation and was impressed by the speed and efficiency of the tree crew.

Some people expressed concern that the eagles might leave N2B. While we didn't see Mom or DM2 for most of the day, DM2 arrived with a stick at 4:50 pm: https://youtu.be/L82nKijvnhM. Given the position of the nest in relation to the perch tree, we're not sure whether they were responding to the tree's removal or keeping under cover because of the cold weather. Whatever the reason, we were all happy to see him back!

Why did the DNR remove the famous maple? Several hatchery trees have been parasitized by Northern Tooth fungus (Climacodon septentrionale), which grows in the central heartwood and weakens the tree. The DNR was worried about the tree snapping and perhaps landing on a car or even a person. Here is more information about the fungus: https://www.forestfloornarrative.com/?/fungifriday-the-nort?.

Long time watchers will remember that Mom and Dad lost nest N2 when the tree holding it snapped during a thunderstorm in July of 2015. Even if we hadn't built a starter nest, they would have found another tree to rebuild in. Eagles face a lot of challenges in their lives: weather, parasites, other eagles, finding food - the list goes on. They wouldn't have rebounded so successfully if they weren't tough and adaptable animals. DM2 and Mom will find a new perch, although we will miss seeing them on the maple.

Instead of sharing sad photos of the tree removal - it was hard to see an old friend on the ground - I decided to share a few happy memories. Thank you for your understanding.?

By pure coincidence, I was at the Decorah Hatchery when the Iowa DNR representative came to mark trees for removal. It was late October 2019 and he showed me the condition and hazard of every tree that he marked.

The maple was a falling hazard. Better that it came down in a controlled manner.

Decorah Eagles will adapt. They adapted from having Nest Two (N2) being violently taken down in a storm to adopting Nest Two B (N2B) started by Raptor Resource Project. If they can adapt to a new nest site, a new perch in the forest is not much of a challenge.

Urgent matters here yesterday - missed all the maple talk.

Eagles will adapt soon for sure.  They've shown their practical, pragmatic side many times since 2011. 

Now we (Decorah family) have to be just as accepting and aaptive.  Me thinks that will be the harder of the two.  Treasure you past pics and memories and let's see what our eagles will teach us in the days ahead.

Get those cameras ready for an entire new collection of pics.

This comes from a stubborn, nostalgic lady trying very hard to save as many of my ash trees in the back yard as I can.  Most in the greater Chicago area have been taken down.  Hypocrite.

I am going to surprise myself by looking at the bright side of the loss of the maple tree. Mom is definitely close to laying her first egg. It's a good thing that the inevitable removal was done before she goes into labor, which is hard enough without monsters of machinery around.
Now to resume my regularly scheduled attitude. I'm happy that D32 will get a soft release from SOAR soon, but I will worry about his first year and wish him plenty of luck. He will need it.

Good morning everyone!  Just thought I'd pop in.  Been perching and reading daily, however thought I'd pop on and say how exciting it is that D32 has progressed enough to consider soft release as soon as conditions are favorable.  Moreover, Mom is getting close to dropping her first egg of this season and we'll be off and running!!  Hope you all are having a great day!
Title: Re: Decorah Eagles 2020
Post by: NWargo01 on February 19, 2020, 09:33:34 AM
Just a quick hello and finally caught up on the last few days posts. 

Great news on D32!  I hope being out in the open won't spook him too much, but I'm sure he'll adapt quickly.

Sad about the maple, but if you've ever been to Decorah, you know that people park their cars right under those trees at the hatchery, not to mention walking or bike riding under them.  So if it was in that bad of shape, I'm glad they did take it down.  And Mom and DM2 have adapted to far worse than having to find a new perching tree, so bets are they'll have a new one picked out before our tears are dried.  ;)

Fantastic pics, comments and gifs from everyone!  I see Ruby and Pel are now posting as well - welcome, and the more the merrier! 

Will be so glad when this move is OVER!!  9 days and counting, then back to my regularly scheduled programming...namely, the eagles!  Can't tell you how much I appreciate everyone keeping me up-to-date with your pics and gifs!  When I saw how many posts there were this morning (I get e-mail notifications) my heart sank because I thought I missed the first egg laying.  But not yet!  Very soon though.

Lisa, that's so neat that they had the Decorah eagles on your TV station.  They are quite famous, you know.  ;D ;) 

So we have a lot to be grateful for - Mom's eye looks like it's completely healed.  And the take down of the maple happened before she was in egg laying mode, so that's good.  And Mom and DM2's pair bonding has been wonderful this season.  Yes, we've had some Beakersons moments, but all in all, they've been very affectionate and have worked like a couple building their first dream home.  ;D

Take care everyone and I hope to be chatting and posting very VERY soon.  :)

Eagles in Iowa in February...tough assignment. Mom has packed on a few pounds to make nice eggs and be able to brood, making it harder to fly around looking for a meal. Both eagles have brood patches nearly ready which makes it very uncomfortable to go fishing in those cold temperatures. All in all, they're doing fine! :)

A week from Sat. will be the once-in-4-years leap day.  I think it would be kind of neat if we had a RRP Leap of Kindness Day that day. 

There should be eggs at all 3 nests (DE, DNN & FSV) by the end of next week & people could donate to RRP in celebration of this incredible opportunity we have to view the eagles up close & personal & follow their family lives again this season.  There could also be a prominent link to purchase RRP merchandise, and links so that viewers could learn & spread the word about going lead free in hunting & fishing, as well as wildlife protection actions everyone could take (including simply picking up trash that could harm raptors, moving carrion off roads, etc.).

I have had two very full days so I just scanned quickly through the squirrel saga and so many beautiful pics and GIFS. Facing an afternoon of more phone calls and chores. Ugh.

NWargo, you have my complete sympathy about the move. We downsized and moved 11 months ago, and it nearly killed us. There is plenty to do once you get into the next place. Unfortunately, when we purged a lot of files, we shredded papers from 34 years ago when we built the house. Now its tax prep time, and things could get complicated. I should have listened to my inner pack rat/hoarder. I hope you are getting enough sleep. We both got sick three weeks after the move, and I'm sure exhaustion caused it.

Eagles do not have an easy life, but at least they don't have Packing and Paperwork!

P

Puff - I was assuming a lot of things - like the cam shot looks the same but there's a big empty where the maple used to be. Then there was Brian saying their favorite tree was cut down before and they just took over the next tree (aka the maple). Have no idea if the "new" perch tree is a maple or not. And I certainly don't know if they'll keep using it. :P

It's time to roll the Decorah Eagles Nestflix! Everyone is happy that they've already found a new perch on one of the remaining maples! We have bonding, nestorations, stunning close-ups of Mom, and video of Mom on the new perch. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did, and thanks as always to our wonderful camera operators and video makers for finding and sharing such special moments! Perch picture credit Brian Malaise, and kudos to Dave Kester for finding the perch before the eagles did.

Decorah Eagles

February 20, 2020: Mom, DM2 to the nest, Mom flies to the new maple perch - https://youtu.be/4MyAYLq0yEU. It took roughly a day for Mom and DM2 to find a new perch! They've taken up on one of the remaining maples and seem happy and content arranging materials in the nestbowl. The sun is shining, the temperature is rising, and Mom and DM2 are getting ready for eggs. I especially enjoyed DM2 working on the nestbowl during the middle section of this video. The nest is high enough that we can't see most of hist chest - just his head, poking up above the crib rails!

February 19, 2020: DM2 brings a squirrel to the nest - https://youtu.be/5pTKcQfr1xQ. DM2, you need to share with Mom! He did, eventually: https://youtu.be/a9YMNGtUO7o.

February 19, 2020: Mom has fish for breakfast, nestorations - https://youtu.be/N_3kAD7MQxg. It's interesting to compare the Decorah and Decorah North eagles. Egg lethargy appears to have set in at the Decorah North. While the egg clock is ticking in Decorah, Mom and DM2 appear to be a little earlier on in the process. In this video, Mom enjoys a little breakfish on the branch cafe before bringing home the nestovers. At 7:39, she pulls some nesting material out from underneath the snow before flying away.

February 19, 2020: Mom on the Y, closeups - https://youtu.be/OTbhzpo1GRM. Twenty-six beautiful minutes!

February 19, 2020: Mom climbs aboard DM2 while working on the nest together - https://youtu.be/LoQpNvtvG7Q. Board member Dave Kester and I shivered in the cold as we tried to observe Mom and DM2 from the ground. We should have gone inside and turned on the computer! Mom did not let the work at the hatchery stop her from giving DM2 a little attention!

Watching DNF and Mr. North slumber last night reminded me of this blog: https://www.raptorresource.org/2020/?/20/sweet-eagle-dreams/. Do eagles dream? We believe they do.

Taking a couple of minutes to say "Hi" to everyone.  I did get into Forum this morning and was in the middle of posting comments on the great pics and gifs from yesterday/today and heard a POP and saw a power strip sparking under my desk!  It tripped a breaker and I lost my whole post, but please know I was thanking everyone for all of the great info you provided.  Wanted so badly to get into the flash chat too, but we'll have lots of chats going forward, right?

Congrats to DNF on her first egg of the season!  What a feat that was - several stories up with the nest rocking to beat the band!  These eagles are a hardy bunch!  ;D  The video Tulsa provided gave an awww moment.  When Mr. came to see his egglet for the first time, he fluffed up grass around it to protect it from the wind. 

Hopefully it's not windy like that (or snowing/raining) when Mom lays her first egg of the season.  I don't ask for too much, do I?  ;)

Take care everyone and have a great weekend!

I have had two very full days so I just scanned quickly through the squirrel saga and so many beautiful pics and GIFS. Facing an afternoon of more phone calls and chores. Ugh.

NWargo, you have my complete sympathy about the move. We downsized and moved 11 months ago, and it nearly killed us. There is plenty to do once you get into the next place. Unfortunately, when we purged a lot of files, we shredded papers from 34 years ago when we built the house. Now its tax prep time, and things could get complicated. I should have listened to my inner pack rat/hoarder. I hope you are getting enough sleep. We both got sick three weeks after the move, and I'm sure exhaustion caused it.

Eagles do not have an easy life, but at least they don't have Packing and Paperwork!

Just saw your post lilbirdz - thanks for the advice!  I've actually been fighting a cold(?) for the last month, and I'm sure it's due to the stress.  I have no problem sleeping though - I'm so exhausted by the end of my 10 - 12 hour work days I've even fallen asleep while eating dinner!  But this too shall pass - in exactly one week from today, thank God!!  I remember when you were going through your move.  They (whoever They are) say moving is one of the most stressful things you can do, and they're not kidding!  Glad you're past your move!

I didn't think it wood take very long for Mom & DM2 to just 'skip on down the line' to the next maple.
But wow I'm so very happy to see they did it without missing so much as a wing flap.  8)

DM2- "That very unusual two footer noisy winter storm came through the other day, did you notice that Mom?"
Mom- "Yeah yeah, I don't know what that's all about, it happens every few seasons around this joint.
           I just move one tree to the south closer to the fish in a barrel".

Now just spin up that Marvin Gaye tune again, those DNN's are making us look bad ..  ;)    ;D    :D

It's all good eburg. ROFL we're truly crying with laughter over here. I'm a stickler for map accuracy.  8)

I do know a wee bit about trying men's souls including my own.
I don't think this eagle realm has much to do with it.

QQQ.   Hi!  New to the forum, but long time watcher.  I was just curious - we have seen Mom's dominating behavior towards DM2 as egg time gets closer.  My question is a bit of a long shot, but I was wondering if Mom was observed doing this behavior with Dad, in her first year or so on the nest when she was just coming into her first mating season(s),  or did it take her some time to feel comfortable, or know to do it?  I suppose the question could be expanded to any first year female coming into her first mating season.   Has this behavior been observed, or does it take her time to get used to her mate?  thank you.

Brooklyn Girl M has always been dominate, almost mean to Dad.  There are those who believe that Dad just took off to find a mate with better personality (me included).  No proof, only opinion.

Brooklyn Girl - In an RRP Facebook post titled Winter Solstice & Mom is Feeling Frisky! dated 12-21-19, Sherri Elliott stated ... I've seen it also with Mrs North (not DNF/ Decorah North Female last season), but the behavior of Mom taking charge has been noted since 2011 when I first started keeping track. It could very well happen at other nests too, I just don't happen to watch any others. lol ;)

D27 and D24 sent valentine's day cards this week! D27 is currently hanging out south of Nordness, while D24 spent time near Spillville, Iowa. This area of Iowa is eagle paradise - plenty of food, abundant perching places, rolling fields, and steeply folded hills with rivers and creeks flowing beneath them.

D27 went on extensive walkabouts in March and April last year before migrating north in May. We're curious to see whether she does the same thing again this year. Will the warmer spring forecast by NOAA and the Weather Channel shift her timing? Stay tuned - and thanks to both eagles for phoning home!

To explore the travels of all the eagles we've tracked, visit our interactive eagle maps at https://www.raptorresource.org/learning-tools/eagle-map/. A thousand thanks to Brett Mandernack and the staff of Eagle Valley for sharing their knowledge, maps, and expertise!

Welcome, BG.  It's nice to see you here.  I don't comment very often, but I do try to keep up with reading all the comments.  There are a lot of knowledgeable and seasoned followers here on Forum.  I note that Harriet at SWFL shares Mom's  dominant behavior toward her mate, and no, JMO, I do not believe Dad left because Mom was mean to him.  I don't think he would have left his eaglets.

Things were looking promising for tonight, but then Mom left the nest.  Branch drew her away.  Looking more like later now.  But I'll watch and wait just in case.

Mom came down early from the skywalk, did a lil diggin' in the bole, DM2 came down shortly after peeked under Mom's petticoat and then made himself comfy in his happy spot.

Replacing original post that was cleared when Amy did update.

                              AFTER THE FLEDGE 2020

Back by popular demand . . .These are the arrangements we have on hold for the 2020 season of ATF.   As indicated, the main festivities are being held for Thursday, July 16 through Sunday, July 19.  If you are interested and want to hold a room, please contact me.  You will have to reserve your space with a credit card.  No charges are made until July.  Just as before there is no cancellation fee if cancelled within the time each hotel will specify;  it does vary from property to property.  You know you can always contact me, also, if you have any questions regarding the hotels or other dates.  Taxes are not included and will be additional.  More ATF arrangements will be forthcoming later from others as available.       

Country Inn & Suites    (6 rms)                 July 16               $108
                                                              July 17               $155
                                                              July 18               $182

Fairfield Marriott    (10 rms)                     July 16 - 18        $159

Hotel Winneshiek    (6 rms)                      July 16               $119

Super 8 Decorah    (12 rms)                     July 16 - 18         $129

All properties have some king bed rooms and some two queen bed rooms, priced at the same price.  There is an allotted number of rooms at each property.
Quality only does differentiate price vs. bed.

Rooms do have a free cancellation if done within a cancellation period.
To hold a reservation:  Your name, address, phone number, credit card information.  Booked through me only.  If security issues concern you, you can send your cc number to me broken into two separate emails.

Now that we have seen DM2 giving fish to Mom, we know for sure that his instincts have kicked in. If he wants to get his DNA out there, he must feed his woman. She needs the extra calories for egg production (and maybe reassurance that he is a good provider). Keep those fish coming!

AWESOME pics everybody!!  Anyone thinking tonight might be the night?  I haven't been able to watch enough lately to tell if Mom's behavior is indicating that...

DM2 just took off from N2B and I think he was headed to the 'new' maple.  Love how quickly they adopted their new perching tree!

Hello, Eagle watching friends. I am eagerly watching for egglets also. I remember Dad Decorah presented Mom with a fish when she was ready to lay.

Sad news from here, my sister died today after a long battle with kidney failure.

I am very sorry for your loss.  Hugs & prayers for you & your family during this difficult time.

If things go well this year, DM2 is in for a lesson. He thinks this "birthin' babies" stuff is a piece of cake. One day the eaglets just up and disappear and then, so does he! ::)

Lori, your sunset pic from yesterday was awe-inspiring!  God definitely has more than 64 crayons in his coloring box!  Just beautiful!

Puff, you okay?!  Saw that you woke up at 3 after the meds wore off - did you have a procedure done?

Fantastic captures tig, Matisse, Lisa, EA, and MpMom!

Great pics/gifs of the Deer Family, Lori and MpMom! (Wonder if they know the Beakerson?! LOL)

Well, hope today is "the day" for Egg #1 (aka D34).  Mom laid the 2nd and 3rd eggs on 2/26 & 3/2, respectively, last year.  I remember some folks were getting worried when it got to be later, but I imagine as her body ages, things are going to change from the way it was when she was younger as it does with us too.  I'm just happy she can still lay eggs!

From RRP's FB page:

Raptor Resource Project
14 hrs

We have a Decorah Eagles and Great Spirit Bluff Nestflix megaroll for everyone tonight! A lot of people are wondering why Mom hasn't laid an egg yet. DM2 is, as RRP board member Jim Robison pointed out, doing a great job of bringing her into condition for egg-laying by feeding her, working on the nest with her, and bonding with her on a regular basis. Perhaps - and this is a big perhaps - Mom's late January eye injury, followed by all the activity at the hatchery, delayed her a little bit. We didn't see much of Mom at all while she was recovering from whatever happened to her eye in mid-January. She and DM2 were just starting to get back into their groove with copulation and food deliveries when activity at the hatchery appeared to slow down bonding activities for another day. Female eagles need to store up water reserves and sperm to be ready for eggs, which means a lot of meals, a lot of copulation, a little more sunny perching, and a little less activity, nestorations notwithstanding. The last few days have been full of eating, copulation, and sunny perching, so we're very hopeful for an egg soon. Maybe February 26th?

I enjoyed all of these videos, but I loved 'Stick Fledges' - it is a very funny video! - DM2's big stick delivery, the close-ups of Mom and DM2, Newman chasing a subadult, and Newman chupping, or sweet-talking an unknown female falcon. We'll write a little bit more about falcon courtship later this week! Thanks to our camera operators and videomakers for finding and sharing such great moments, and to you for watching, learning, and caring!

Decorah Eagles

February 25, 2020: DM2 brings Mom a nice fish - https://youtu.be/QD6Z8rWf8k8. Exactly what the title says! DM2 brings Mom a fish. He hands it right over - sushi: what a nice gift! - and she gobbles it down with great enthusiasm.

February 25, 2020: Big stick delivery, DM2 closeups - https://youtu.be/GHw7xDlOpS8. DM2 is lumberjacking again - and notice that he soars upward into the nest instead of flying down from above! Slow down the video and you'll see that the stick is perfectly balanced in his talon as he floats down into the nest. He moves it all around the nest, trying to get it placed just so or, failing that, to snap a pesky side branch off! At 2:50, he lays down to work on the nestbowl (I was pretty impressed by how much the nest has grown over the last few days). Close-ups begin around 6:20 and they are stunning!

February 24, 2020: Stick Fledges! - https://youtu.be/i8Rt0F4utZA. If you like stick tango, this video is for you! It opens with a tango that turns into tug of stick as both eagles express strong opinions about where exactly the stick should go! The stick fledges at 44 seconds. Check out Mom and DM2's very funny reaction!

February 24, 2020: DM2 brings fish for breakfast - https://youtu.be/8WZP6o-iJPQ. Mom flies into the nest and begins looking around. When DM2 arrives with breakfish at 1:48, Mom puts on the kettle and begins wheedling! DM2 doesn't seem inclined to share at first, although he doesn't fly away. Look and listen for starlings in the backyard as the two vocalize and Mom makes it clear that she wants the fish! At 3:26, she sidles over to DM2, who gracefully surrenders his fish to his hungry mate. Mom mantles over it - check 3:35 for an impressive look at just how big she gets! - and begins eating while DM2 stands watch.

February 23, 2020: Settling in for the night, such a beautiful sight - https://youtu.be/bL3IU8rrRD0. See the eagle heart at 1:35? Sherri suggested that could be Mom's baby on board sign! This is a short but lovely video of Mom and DM2 settling in for the evening.

February 22, 2020: Copulate and chilling on the Y branch - https://youtu.be/15pfmRbAPcc. After copulating, Mom and DM2 chill on the Y-Branch. I loved the looks we got of them against the backdrop of the farm, but I especially loved the mutual vocalizations beginning at 5:40. This looks more like a bonding activity than a response or warning to an intruder and Mom appears to assume a receptive position a couple of times throughout the duetting. Listen for Mom's wingflaps as she flies off at 7:55.

February 20, 2020: Close-ups of Mom (https://youtu.be/jNVV7rufg6w) and DM2 (https://youtu.be/fX9L3agDQl4). The DM2 video includes a look at DM2 on the new perch with a cool Mom flyby at 8:31!

Took this one of Mom while she was laying the egg.  I'm pretty sure she was checking to see if it had come out.   ;D

GREAT pics and gifs everyone!  D34 is in the house, er nest!  Did she finally get the egg rolled into the nest cup?  I kept thinking that white spot near her tail was the egg, but after seeing tig's pic I knew for certain that it was her white feathers, not the egg.

And she does that 'shudder' each time her body contracts while pushing the egg out.  This one was lightening fast!  DM2 barely made it out of the nest and she was in full blown labor.

I agree nanimal!  Seems like she shuddered a few times, then boom, we had eggage!  ;D

In the 6 years I've watched, this is the first time I've seen the egg laid live!  Seems like I always just missed it, but not this time!  :-*

Nan - I can't believe you've missed it all this time.  I wonder if I still have your phone number.  I'll call you when she starts pushing for #2.

I also couldn't believe that those on chat didn't know to quiet down and turn the sound up to listen to her sweet chirps.  No one alerted the new chat fans?  Love the sweet chirps and then the quiet when she's done her duty so well.

Lisa, I think that was the fish DM2 brought in last night. He ate most of the one he brought in this morning and she finished.

Something seemed to have her attention for awhile.

DM2 seems to love sitting on his egglet. Not really surprising since it is in his happy spot!

Great pics Matisse, MpMom and Lisa.

I got some snaps of closeups too. Interesting the contrast between Mom and DM2's head feathers and profiles.

Great pics, tig and MpMom  :)

They both alerted a couple of times earlier today. He seems pretty calm now, so hopefully whatever had them triggered is gone.

Goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway!), everyone's pics of the blessed event are SUPER!  I am lovin' how close Mom & DM2 are this season, and how mature he seems to have become since last year.  Bob A. & Dad must be relieved that Mom has a mate worthy of her awesomeness.  :-*

Lori, you've outdone yourself with yesterday and today's gifs! 

I've only been able to get into Forum for a few seconds today and have enjoyed the GREAT pics and comments I've seen! 

Tomorrow is D-Day, so won't be able to get into the live feed or Forum until next week.  But tell Mom she doesn't have to wait to lay that 2nd egg until I'm watching. LOL 

SED all, and can't wait to catch up next week and see what's happened!  :)

Mom has to make some room for Egg #2.  ;D
The 72 hr mark is at 5:44 pm CST.
That's about Mom's egg laying average time between Egg#1 & Egg#2.  (-2hrs/+24hrs).  :)

~  So if I was a betting man I'd bet some good money there will be another egg in the next 24 hrs  ~   ;) ;)

BL - thanks for your historical data!

Last year, when Mom laid egg #2 at 6:44 PM, she had that squirrel tail like a boa by her neck (DM2 had brought a red meat meal to the nest earlier that afternoon).  I was hoping to see him bring in one of lucky's relatives so she could have a fur stole while (hopefully) laying egg #2 tonight.   ::)  Before he brought in the squirrel last year they mated on the skywalk.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvCsl3GudAE&t=43s

LisaG here's a .pdf of the nest record attached below. It might be easier to read/save.
As far as I know it's a fairly accurate record of the nest gleaned from several sources.

If any Decorah Eagleholics notice any inaccurate info feel free to PM me.
I'll check any discrepancies available to my google fingertips and make edits if needed.   :)

LisaG here's a .pdf of the nest record attached below. It might be easier to read/save.
As far as I know it's a fairly accurate record of the nest gleaned from several sources.

If any Decorah Eagleholics notice any inaccurate info feel free to PM me.
I'll check any discrepancies available to my google fingertips and make edits if needed.   :)

Thank you, BL!

Lisa I have a guesstimate of 6:28 pm CST on the laying of Egg #2. 
I'll wait for the RRP official post however.   8)

So by my guess that would be 72 hrs, 44 min between E1 & E2 of 2020.

You can set your watch or leap year calendar by Mom some years.  ;D ;D ;D

I must say it never gets old or less eggciting when Mom Decorah bestows a possible new Bald Eagle into our great country.

A decade of watching (most of them live) Mom D bring BE's into our world is so adjective goes here.

I thought I knew a few things about BE's from my own time in the field 'around them' aka below.
Nope, the true educational contribution and scope of knowledge gained by so many humans of these raptors by RRP's endeavor will take decades more to be truly realized.   

Huge kudos to the entire RRP Team for making all of this available to the world.
There's an extra special raptor room up there, well actually it's a whole wing, but yall' get thermals when ya' get there.  ;)

Bob Anderson's vision being carried forward in the fine talons of his protege has him smiling up there with a brewski raised high.  :)

A finer tribute and legacy to one mans vision I can't imagine !

Peace out and soar nicely my fellow RRP Forum fans this evening.

The rewind feature on the video is pretty cool when you want to see an event that you missed. Hover over the video and the red bar shows you the time that you want to see, up to twelve hours back.

About 4 hours ago, when an intruder flew around as in Lisa G's gif, and Mom flew off, DM2 was having a fish for breakfast on the pond branch. Geese were feeding in the water below. Rewind, and you can see. At the end, DM2 flew to the N2B nest.

Lori, fantastic gifs as usual - you outdid yourself!

And sorry this is so late, but first time I've been on in 3 days...

He brought in a fish and she wanted it and they had a tug of war with it but mom won lol

I think he wanted to eat the head again and leave her the rest but she wanted the whole thing lol

Mom took out some of the rails too on that departure.  I hope she didn't lose the fish!
Title: Re: Decorah Eagles 2020

Yeah I was wondering if she lost the fish too when I seen she took some rails with her and went down towards the ground before I seen her come back up.

Thanks Lisa, great caps by you too!

Shelly, I think he did want the head but Mom was having none of it!

I hope she didn't lose the fish too, she left like she was a bull in a china shop. She was not going to share that fish! Honestly, the cries she was making right before he showed up with it, I thought something was about to attack her.

I was doing something else on my computer when I heard her and was like oh that sounds like she is wanting what dm2 has and when I switched to the page there he was with the fish. He has to learn to eat the head before coming to the nest or he won't be having any of it lol.

I had it in the background too. I couldn't decide if he was in the area with food or something was about to get her. He definitely needs to eat the head before he brings the rest to the nest. Too funny!

So THAT was what Mom's crying was about!  Thank goodness it was only over food and not an intruder trying to attack.  The way Mom was whimpering so lightly for a while made me almost think she was about to lay that 3rd egg!  Mystery solved.  ;D ;)

Great pics and gifs everyone!  Going to check out Tulsa's video of the fish fight! LOL

Congratulations to Mom & DM2 on egg #3  -  Mom was right on schedule at 3days /23 hours/ 31 minutes (5:59pm)... her window has been 4 days plus or minus 2 hours for the years that time was recorded.  8)

Hatch window should start at 37 days after 1st egg laid - April 3, 6pm  - and no later than April 5, noon  -  Pip can be as much as 2 days before hatch
