I've made five trips to Decorah, the first in 2013 and the most recent in 2018, but not during ATF.  If I ever go again it will be to ATF. For those of us who love the Decorah eagles, it is truly a magical place, at least it felt that way to me and most especially on my first trip there. If you're fortunate enough to see Mom, DM2, or one more more juvies it will become a memory you keep forever. Wishing all of you a wonderful time and safe travels. Please take pictures and share if you can.

Lisa And other newbies this may pertain to. . .

If you're driving and have the room, good suggestion is to bring along a portable lawn chair.  There is bench seating under the pavilion, and under the gathering tent for pizza night and Saturday night festivities there will be tables and chairs, BUT

For waiting and watching for the appearance of any flying objects at the retention runoff pond for fish dinner, it helps to sit.  We know from forum that appearances can be long-awaited.   ::)  Another nice meet-and-greet area.  Just a reminder, though, to wait quietly so the honored guests are not dissuaded from coming by.  Just saying - a chair and patience are useful for downtime.

Don't forget your binoculars, Lisa.  Last check on forum before I head out the door.   :) :)

Philjo, great pics of eagle fishing this morning!  ATF attendees might get some closeups later this week.
