Good morning Lisa, it looks like she is doing a happy dance.  Beautiful morning in Decorah.

LOL, yes, she did a lil wing flappy thing after she landed.

LisaG I hope you can help orient me since you have been to the hatchery. M2 I totally get.  ;D   8)

When you say "to the pines behind the hatchery" ..

Which group of pines are you referring to ?

A I suspect.

I'm also assuming when Mom & DM2 are seen on camera at either the Pines, Bluffs or Retention pond it's the Pavilion Camera we are watching ??

It looks like I'm looking west FROM the pavilion cam in the AM by the low sun angle and cloud type. 

I just can't get my bearings FROM the top of the pavilion TO "the Pines" with the rising terrain on the lower right of the image for some reason.



As we sit on top of Bulwagga Mtn with howling NW wind and some nippy main line Canadian temps we ponder such things.

We just Champ watching.

Well that wind had an amusing leaf here N push to it, perhaps descending back to Moriah Center with a fireplace and toddy.   

Stood up, stretched, 360° looked around, but real good. 
I must say Lake Champlain you've never looked better.

                                       never gets old viewing this kaleidoscope of terrain color does it

All these questions re the lay of the land . . . almost makes me think someone is casing  the place.  LOL (only kidding)

Gee, it must be a dozen times I've been there and I'm getting half the questions wrong. 

My contribution to the quiz no one knows the answers  YET

Which tree will the nest be in next for M and DM2?
Which direction will the eaglets take for their fledge flight?
Where's the potty?
If the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, where does it go on rainy days?

Fire Wine and Great company.      8)

Critters frolicking around what I consider to be one of my top 10 finest field stone fireplaces .

And I shit you not the pet porcupine named Sam or Samantha.

Kopje and Sam are right now snuggling right in front of the fireplace.

Chilling and chilly are universal.  8)

Good boy, Good boy.

Let's go outside and see some real skunks, raccoons, wild porcupines and some bigger animals in the great out of doors.

Kopje Stay. 

Absolute stop . like stuck in mud.

Apparently Robert has a semi pet opossum.     

Good boy. Good Boy.  '''

BL, fox took your boot for real? LOL Can't imagine what the fox was going to do with a boot.

Yup. I found it the next morning about 200 yards down the trail.
It was a little chewed up but still wearable. little bugger.  ;)
I think they like the salts myself, but it's not uncommon at all ..

T40 T40 that's the very one.

The very rare and allusive VT blue masked jungle moc fox. Very seldom seen in daylight, shhh ..

The Marmot in CO 1973 ate the hand touched salty leather patches right off of my 1st 60 $$ Kelty Pack.

Marmots lead us to moths, moths lead us to steep talus slopes and Grizzly Bears.   :)

Funny how this passing through it nature thing works.

I hope Lisa gets on soon and answers the pine tree question once and for all.  I couldn't sleep worrying about this last night.

BL - The "pines behind the hatchery" that I was referring to, is the group of pines A in your photo that you attached.  Maybe, that area is not considered behind the hatchery??  I am guessing that the pavilion cam can see all the areas you mentioned...pines, bluffs and retention, as the pavilion is kind of a central location for them all from the photo attached as well.  I believe that rising terrain you are seeing in my cloud pic is the area to the right of your A.  I captured that one evening when the cam op was panning around.   Enjoy your outdoor adventure.  :)

Puff - LOL good questions!

Good morning Lisa,
I failed that test.
PUFF, I would not want you for a teacher.  Your questions are too hard to answer. (I hope you know that I am just kidding).  :D :D

Ah ha jaspurr  I got my lernin' from some good teachers - took after them.  Things seem to have really gone amuck lately.  Actually, from an insiders perspective, I'd say it started in the late 70's early 80's.  I have an entire book of observations/opinions but that would abut on the banned political edge.

I am part of the "silent generation" that had some real good bringin' up. Therefore I am what I am and think what I've learned.  For instance, being a mountain girl, I got hooked on eagles at about 1980 when I saw up close and personal a flying bald eagle.  WOW turn into addicted.
