Thanks for the article, Arcadia. So sad about the losses, but YAY for the scientists!
So it is Mom! Nice to see another visit today, Lisa.  Looking forward to the next on the ground update (with pictures, of course) of the sweet eaglets!

It sure looks like Mom.  I hope I am right.   :)

I am ready for another boots on the ground report too!

The Decorah Eagles are doing wonderfully over at N3! Thanks to Iver Burl for the videos and news - it is great to see them!
April 30, 2021: New Nest Decorah Eaglets, midmorning: https://youtu.be/ml1tRkX6ZaI.
April 30, 2021: New nest Decorah Eagles, parents on watch:
https://youtu.be/6M14Y2fl8q4.
You can count three little heads (D37, D38, and D39) in the midmorning video and a nice look at a P - I think it's DM2, but the eagle never turns its head! - in the parent on watch video. We think that the eaglets started hatching on or around April 4, which would make the oldest eaglet right around 28 days old. We can see white mohawks, warbling, pinfeathers (37 seconds and 1:15), and poop painting on the branches.

Iver Burl's (aka iverburl) comments on the videos:

The three eaglets of the Decorah Eagles at their new nest location (undisclosed). Shot with a very long lens, hence any shaking and distortion.
Camera on public property, nest on private land. Please always respect privacy of landowners and nesting eagles. This video or portions of it may be copied and shared, but only without editing and with this disclaimer included.

Philjo - Great pics!

T40 - Thanks for the RRP post!  So good to see the eaglets doing well at the new nest.

Looks to me like the tree isn't budding.  Oh, oh.

Thanks for your generous help, Iver.

Puff, does that mean that tree might be dead too?

Puff, if you mean the new nest tree, it seemed to have buds emerging on top. It is far though, hard to see. Sorry, I should have shot a closer zoom of the parent.

iver  yes, I was referencing N3.  Keep your eye/lens on things and let me know if anything develops?

Thanks for all the captures of Mom at M2, Lisa.  She knows where the best fishing is!  It seems like N3 must not be too far away since she still frequents the hatchery area fairly often now that the eaglets have arrived.

Arcadia, thank you for the informative article from Susan Milius.  Glad they finally figured out that the Hydrilla was 'leaking' bromine compounds, but I wonder what the next step is.  It seems that they need to eliminate the hydrilla so eagles, owls, and other predators won't consume the poisoned water fowl that feed on it.

STL, nice shot of Mom! 

BIG thanks to iverburl for the videos and pics of N3!  Great to see the family doing well in their new location.

Philjo, nice series of pics, especially the last one of Mom(?) landing.  Looked like a blackbird was trying to mob her.
My spirit will never be broken or caught, for the soul is a free flying thing, like an eagle that needs neither comfort or thought to rise up on glorious wings.

You're welcome, NW, any day to see Mom on M2 is a good day!  :)

I am thinking N3 must not be too far away either, maybe not in eyesight from N2B, but close enough.
 
Another chatter on Explore and I hear eagle chatter very early in the morning, near the nest.  Some mornings, it sounds like there is one that goes screaming by.
