Lisa, great to see Mom and DM2 in the area of N1.  Of course it's great to see them anywhere in the Decorah area!  Here are several pics from me at about the same times.  Guess it is not food-sharing time for this pair, yet.

Wonderful pics, STL! 

It was great to see both again this morning.

A few afternoon pics from Decorah - Mom perched in tree below the bluffs, Mom flying over M2, two eagles soaring, and Mom in the pines

Love the pics, STL and Lisa!  Thanks!

Love being able to share pics of Mom and DM2 hanging around the Hatchery and environs nearby! They were back in the maples early this morning.

A few morning pics from Decorah - Mom was on M2, and then DM2 flew in and joined her.

Lisa, they like that tree area at the base of the bluffs for sure.  Mom was at the top of her maple earlier, then about 12:30 she brought a fresh fish for lunch to N1!!  DM2 watched from a horse pasture branch and Red grazed.  Mom paused briefly on the Y before flying away, and DM2 flew off soon after.  My hopes are up for use of N1 this season.

Does anyone at RRP have sightings of Mom and DM2 nestorizing anywhere yet?

Mom arrived with a fish at N1, while DM2 sat on the pasture branch.  Mom ate it, moved up to the Y, and then flew off.  DM2 flew off shortly after her.

STL - Great pics...I am going to take a guess and say they will be nestorizing at N3 again.  RRP added this in the 11/20/21 post.....
On November 20th, camera operator ReWrap checked out N2B for us. He reported: "I arrived in view of N3 at 7:40. Mom was in the nest and DM2 perched just above on the right. Mom flew down a couple times and back to the nest but I could not see if she brought anything to the nest.  Mom flew out toward the West just after 8:00 and was reported landing on M2 around 8:05. At 8:18 DM2 flew off to the East and back to the nest a minute later. At 8:22 he flew off to a tree along the river about 100 yards to the West. Around 8:40 he flew off toward the West and I didn’t see him again."

Great to see Mom and DM2 (and Red?) at N1. Thanks to all for the wonderful caps! ;D

An eagle was perched in the bluffs this afternoon to the right of where Mom & DM2 usually perch.  The stayed for a while, and then flew off to the right, circled back over the bluffs and flew off over the pines by the hatchery.

Mom on M2 this afternoon heading off to fish the retention pond, and she got one!
