A few pics from rewind - Last evening Mom was on M2, she flew to skywalk, then to one of her perching branches near N2B, and then back to the upper part of the skywalk where she roosted for the night.  She is still there this morning at 4:30am.

Mom vocalized and then left the skywalk at 5:12am, and headed straight to M2

Here's a question for any boots on the ground or even the cam operators. . .

I see a lot of food and and time of the north nest parents spending time, feeding, and watching their little ones.  But Mom D doesn't seem to have the same devotion to taking care of the Decorah group.  All that time yesterday spent at hatchery and M2 site doesn't leave her with the same motherly time.  And what about new dad?  Is he picking up her slack?  Food, protection, flying instructions do not seem to be Mom's priority.  Nostalgic roosting at home base takes up a lot of her time.  She spent the entire night away from N3?  Maybe someone there can quantify time for both M and new D? 

Points to NN for their diligent work.

Puff, this is the 2nd night that I have seen Mom spend at N2B.  I have wondered all those same questions to myself about Mom. 
I wonder if Mom is not happy with the new nest, but only she would know.    :-\

It has been great to see her on cam tho, but would like to see DM2 also.   :)

It is interesting that Mom has spent a couple of nights at N2.
I bet DM2 is watching the kiddos. I think Robin said in her post that he was always perched close by the new nest. Maybe he told Mom to take some me time! HA!

The Decorah North parents don't spend much time on the nest these days.  It's mostly to just drop off food.  DNF did spent quite a bit of time yesterday but that was unusual and I wondered if it was because there was an intruder in the area.  Regarding spending the night, DNF has only spent one of the last four nights perched at the nest.
