Looked like DM2 on M2, then flew off over the retention pond and headed east between the two big green trees.

Mom was perched at the base of the bluffs, and it seems an intruder came in the area.  DM2 also came in to chase the intruder away.


Mom below at road level, possible intruder up top


DM2 on skywalk, and Mom chasing intruder.  Mom and intruder are kind of hard to see, but both to the right of the skywalk.

i believe it was mom who pulled a fish from the retention pond and the intruder came in from the bluffs in an attempt to get mom's fish, which started the chase. intruder above pond while mom is flying out.

Great pics Lisa, MpMom and Monarch.

Someone came in to the skywalk and stopped briefly during the chase and before DM2 hit the skywalk. Of course, it could have been DM2 both times, it happened so fast.

When the N1 cam was turned off at the end of the 2011 season, I was devastated and sought solace for years to come in every other animal cam out there, from A to Z. It was a good thing and I have profound memories and insights from each and every one of them. But, for me at least, my heart belongs to Decorah and always will. :-*

T40 - Decorah was my 1st eagle cam to watch, and is my FAVORITE.  It is the first one I turn on every morning, and the last I look at every evening.
I do peep in on some others from time to time, but just as you Decorah belongs to my heart!  I will watch this empty nest all season, if Mom & DM2 choose to build elsewhere.
I am just happy we are getting a few glimpses of them here and there.   :)
