DM2 had his fish dinner on the skywalk. Mom landed on the skywalk after DM2 went to his perch.

Great pics, Tig!

Is that Mom again this morning? No zooming in yet.

Here's a random thought. 2-4 years from now, if we see a juvie or a sub-adult at N2B or N1 or the Y, I think we can safely rule out their being from this clutch! Whaddya think? ;)

T40--I think if they show up it will be an accidental encounter as with most "strange birds" that show up at the Decorah Hatchery Nest.  This year, with the Upper Iowa River as low as it's been, even juvies can spot fish there and don't need to go to the Depot of Fishies that Mom Decorah is certainly hooked on!!  Hopefully we'll still see the three from this year yet.  Remember, we've seen juvies from the annual clutch eat trout well into October.  :) ;)
Use the talents you possess: for the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except the best.

eburg - Thanks for the reality check! I like the way you think and I feel better already. ;)
