Could the GBH be starting a new rookery?  Is this the rookery picture that IverB was looking for?

T40, thanks for Rose's link to morning vocals, music to my ears. Also, Robin's updates are wonderful, our vicarious check-in on the life of our eagle family. I'm not sure I could breathe or remain standing if an eagle buzzed me.
iverburl, you are an encyclopedia of information about the world of nature. Thanks for being part of that whole GBH discussion.

Oh my, Mr Decorah as the eagle representative for SOAR.  Thanks for sharing the poster and photos from Memorial Day.  SOAR does so much good work rescuing and saving raptors.  Two years ago (2019), they took care of fledglings DN9 from Decorah North and D32 and D33 from the Decorah nest because of the terrible black fly infestation.  Mr Decorah is older, was D20 from 2014 who was injured soon after fledging.

From rewind yesterday evening - Mom was perched on M2, and then flew off.  A few seconds later you could hear vocals coming from the mic at N2B which sounded like Mom's. The cam ops pointed it at the skywalk, and it looks like Mom was in her favorite spot high up on the skywalk.  She is still perched there this morning as of 4:39am.

Mom left the skywalk, and headed straight for M2 - Sorry for the blurriness on the ones of her flying away and up to the maple

Lisa & others, sure looks (from you pics & rewind) like Mom spent the night on the Skywalk at N2B. Then to the Maple 2.  I missed the fishing activity.  She's getting ready to bring this year's kids soon!

STL - It was a nice treat to wake up and see Mom on the skywalk!

I don't know where D1 and D27 are today, but this is where they were during June in years past.

My apologies to you, D24, for leaving you out of the post. Thinking of you and would love to hear from you again. :-*

I still don't know where anybirdy is. Just hope everyone at Eagle Valley is well and all our wandering eagles are flying high.
