Thanks for the video.
I saw both of them Friday, a few times.
I saw them mating about dawn
I heard them sing their Dawn Song  ❤️   - which I often hear other eagles sing.

Lots of views of our eagle pair this afternoon.  At about 2:13 p.m. nest time there were closeups of the female on the Ladder Branch of the nest tree.   She flew off to the spit and at around 2:28 the cam finds her there bathing in the stream.  The male makes a beautiful flight over from the Love Tree to bathe with her.  When finished, the male flies off to the rootball/downed tree and then to Yonder Branch to dry off.  The female lands on the ground near the rootball and flies up onto it. The male is still on YB.  This will all still be in rewind for awhile and it's worth watching.  I'm sure there will be videos recorded as well.

Thanks for the video link, TPA.  It might have been a opossum, but I dont know for sure.

This is such a nice pair.
They seem to like to be near each other- at home or - out there
Cam op does a great job

They arent in nest together long - grabbed this shot today

Lots of activity today with nest visits and stick harvesting and fly abouts.  Here's a video by Eaglespirit.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=K_mFIe1Fi8w

Some cool things I enjoyed in this video:

9:35 Female flies off the nest and breaks off a stick from a tree across the stream and returns it to the nest.

10:27 Female flies of the nest and goes upstream.  Bird flies up on the left just before the cam blurs.  Cam pics up the bird on the far left.  Eagle flies from center of screen to woods behind the nest and lands on a tree.  Another eagle is already there on a lower branch.  I think this one is the bird I mentioned earlier.  There are some vocals and then the lower eagle flies off and then the upper one.

15:48 Female flies off the nest to a tree to the left of the nest and harvests a stick that she's had her eye on for awhile now.

Ginger - thanks so much for posting videos.  That's so helpful for those of us who are unable to find them on YouTube.

Shep - I agree that this pair of bald eagles appear to be closely bonded, and are a joy to watch.

Decorah North Eagles

01/08/18: Morning delight - https://youtu.be/K_mFIe1Fi8w. My first thought on this video - is this winter? My second thought - wow, look at that nest bowl! The eagles have built a lovely structure from the relatively flat starter nest we built for them. If you look closely, you'll see a clear outer and inner ring, with high crib rails and a nice neat nest bowl. Look for some cool close-ups at 2:26, 3:17, and 6:05; some nest-cup work starting at 14:40, and some very cool perching at 15:55. I really enjoyed this video!

01/05/19: Afternoon bath for the eagles - https://youtu.be/2qVHh-j3n8g. Splish splash, it was time for a bath! Both eagles enjoy a dip on a relatively balmy January day.
