Arlene has another video that shows the owl attacking both of the eagles before it went to the nest (and then the microphone).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEXq900HOm4

Lizzy Eaglespirit captured a video of the multiple attacks by owl on north eagles, as well as the owl's subsequent visit to vandalize the microphone & then hop down to the nest.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAf1tKT37DE

Not that we really need more videos from this morning (LOL), but here's one that includes everything up through the Female flying off the Love Tree at 7:46 a.m.  See my notes that include links to the times in the video when various events occurred.

Ginger - thank you so much!  Your video includes everything, as well as the timeline detailed in your notes.  Amazing!

Tonight's Nestflix features videos from the Decorah Eagles, Decorah North Eagles, Mississippi Flyway Cam, and Great Spirit Bluff cameras. I liked all them, but especially loved the nest guard duty and close-ups in Decorah, this morning's nestorations at Decorah North, and the vivid Red-Bellied Woodpecker at GSB. If you can only watch one video, make sure to check out the eagle buffet and coyote visitor on the Mississippi River Flyway Cam. This was fascinating for so many reasons - multiple eagles feeding at once, some great displays of eagle table manners, and a coyote who crossed the ice to take a look at dinner. We hope you enjoy the videos as much as we did, and thanks as always to our camera operators and video makers for finding and sharing such special moments with us!

Decorah Eagles

01/08/19: Nest guard duty, fit test - https://youtu.be/0P7USln_ew0. Nice fly-ins and fly-outs, nest guarding, and DM2 takes the nestbowl for a spin! It's fascinating to me to watch DM2 as we add to our knowledge about instinctual and learned behaviors. I also enjoyed seeing how high and deep the nestbowl was piled. In addition to making me want to take a nap - the nest is never this nice when we are up working on cameras! - deep, multiple layers of soft, fluffy material will provide excellent insulation in rain or snow!

01/07/19: Sticky Monday - https://youtu.be/cPThPUUPVGE. The sticky fun starts at 1:19! I also recommend comparing the opening frame with the last frame to see what Mom and DM2 did. In addition to bringing in sticks, they shredded a lot of soft materials for the bottom of the nestbowl.

01/05/19: Nestorations & Closeups - https://youtu.be/BjzWT_b3-4o. Watch the whole video or go straight to 2:43 for some wonderful close ups of DM2! Better put that tail down - wind can raise havoc with an upraised tail!

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.

Mississippi River Flyway

01/07/19: Breakfast Interactions - https://youtu.be/3SDR2rZahbI. A mixed age group of Bald Eagles vies for breakfish. Look for eagles running on ice and the fascinating sight of eagles feeding on a carcass together. While it isn't all share and share-alike - the eagles bicker over table rights while they eat - there are several points where more than one eagle feeds at the same time.

01/07/18: Coyote hoping for some of the eagle's breakfast - https://youtu.be/OWTp9l7B0Oc. And then the coyote showed up! After scaring the eagles away, it appeared to sniff at the carcass before trotting across the ice. While it watched from the background (check the video starting at 2:23), four eagles came back. Take a look starting at 3:46 for some very cool footage, and watch the eagles start to come back!

Great Spirit Bluff

01/08/17: Red-Bellied Woodpecker at Great Spirit Bluff - https://youtu.be/KvIvMi1v3_Q. Very cool footage of an adult male Red-Bellied Woodpecker hanging out at the the rock ledge diner! He appears to be picking at some left-over jerky left behind by Newman and Michelle!

Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species -- man -- acquired significant power to alter the nature of the world.

TGIF and Happy Fri-yay! We have Nestflix from Decorah, Decorah North, and the Mississippi Flyway. I loved all of these videos, but don't miss the barred owl visitor and giant stick at Decorah North (the stick was big enough that it took planning to get to the nest), coyotes on ice, or Mom's very fresh two for one fish special in Decorah! I love seeing life in and beyond our nests and on the Mississippi. Who would've guessed that we'd see coyotes on ice in the middle of the day? What else don't we see all around us? Thanks so much for watching and learning with us as we begin another year! <3

Decorah North Eagles

1/10/19: Decorah North Eagles Owl Visitor, Vocals & Copulation - https://youtu.be/lc76r93mIPQ. The barred owl visitor is extremely cool (although the North eagles would disagree)! Thanks to a morning-owl camera operator, we get a great look at it (check its eyes, which are fully dialated since it can't see IR light). The camera operator switches to the eagles and then back to the owl, who is now in the nest, at 3:33. The video concludes with copulation and nestoration by (I think) the female eagle.

1/08/19: Navigating with a huge stick - https://youtu.be/0IhSjLntUZQ. Holy cow, look at that stick! The male has to rest out in the pasture and perhaps plan an approach for bringing it in. After he gets to the branch, go to 1:32 to watch him take off. As we see at about 1:52, he flew out across the field (listen for crows between 1:32 and 1:52) to get the best approach. Stick tango follows!
