Thank you, Lisa, for the progression pictures.
I was thinking while reading Robin's description of the SA's behavior chasing Mom maybe for the food that maybe the SA was an offspring of Mom's.

Lisa - Thanks for the interesting eagle profiles!

Does Mom still look like the 4.5yo eagle she really is?! :-*

Arcadia - Very tempting, even likely, to think of the SA as a Decorah eagle. But don't underestimate a juvie's or SA's ability to make the connection themselves between a fully white head and food, parent or not! ;)

T40 - Thanks for the nice article and pics about our eagles. 

My local tv station WJZ must have someone there that is a fan of our webcams too. 
Between 5 and 6am, they have shown the Decorah nest, DNN, and this morning the Flyway was shown.  :)

T40, thanks for passing on the article link and pics.  That 2nd shot is fierce! 

Lisa, hope all is going well with you!  How did you get the article to come up?  Every time I tried it kept having this box come up saying I had xx amount of free articles left and that I had to sign in or register.  It wouldn't let me go past that - happened 3 times so I gave up.  That's neat that your local station is showing Decorah's nest and the Flyway!

NW - Hey, I am good and I hope you are too!
I just clicked on the link and was able to read the article. 
I get so tickled when I see the cams on my local tv, and have the same exact thing up on my pic screen at the same time.   ;D

T40 and Lisa, thanks for the pics and the good news. Let's all hope we can see Decorah's power couple back at N2B next season.

Happy Saturday, everyone! A quick update: we finished work at the North nest, where we replaced two cameras, took old equipment down, and measured the North nest. The outside measurement - farthest stick to farthest stick! - is 12 feet by 8.25 feet. The inside measurement - the part the eagles use - is 6.25 by 6 feet. It's hard to get a height on this nest, but I'm guessing four feet. It's a big nest!
In Decorah, we cleaned cameras, built a starter nest at N1 (video: https://youtu.be/b7KGQ_cTT6U), and (thanks to the hatchery) left some lovely trout in the new N1 nest and N2B. Following John's blueprint for the Fort St. Vrain nest, we built the N1 starter nest with eyebolts, wire, and branches and mulch from the Decorah Yard Waste site, aka Mulch Mountain for long term fans. Hatchery staff told us that they are seeing Mom and DM2 every morning, so we are hopeful they will return. Keep your talons crossed!
What else is going on? We're working on a backup camera at a new Decorah location! We've set ropes and built a scaffold in preparation for placing cameras later this week, so wish us luck! Dave Kester opened up two banding stations earlier this week - one in Decorah and one over on the Mississippi - and we are seeing rivers of hawks and peregrines pour through. I look forward to posting more about that as migration deepens, but for now, check out our Flyway cam to watch migrants headed south!
Thanks so much for watching, sharing, learning, and especially for caring - and for being patient through our quiet season! Our eagle cams will be back online soon!
