Looks like DM2 on M2, and Mom in the pines this morning

Lisa, we'll take every view we can get!  One of then was perched in the trees at the base of the bluffs and eating something sizeable about 8:30 this morning. Couldn't tell which or what the prey was.

STL - I saw that this morning.  You are right it was hard to tell who it was, and what they were eating.

The sun is setting in Decorah, and the sky looks so pretty!

No eagles this morning, but a goose, horse and red-bellied woodpecker

We love all the wildlife and the tame-life (horse).  Do we know this paint horse?

Was the horse taken from N1 at the white barn?  I don't remember seeing a paint there before.

jaspurr and STL - This horse was not in the same yard as Red.  This one was on the other side of the stream, west of N1 down where it curves, at least that is what it looked like when the CamOp zoomed out.

Afternoon pics from Decroah - Mom was spotted perched below the bluffs in a tree.  She fished the retention pond, and went to the pasture branch, feaked her beak and vocalized.

DM2 arrives on the Y branch, and Mom joins him.  They copulate on the Y.

You're kidding - on the Y branch.   I'm grinning ear to ear.

First, many thanks to all, especially Lisa, for the pics. You make it clear that Mom and DM2 are very active, and we can see only a small fraction of what goes on in their life. I really hope they do not choose N3 again this year. I thought I read something a long time ago that eagles won't nest in a dead/dying tree because of lack of shade. Also, the nest is very heavy, which makes it dangerous. Does anyone know more about this?
