Hi, all! I used to be Sasafrass452, but decided to make a change 😄 The new starter nest is exciting, I hope mom & dm2 accept it, or come back to n2b! Fingers crossed for another great season!

CQ - Welcome back! But you're gonna have to explain how you went from sassafras to cheese! LOL! ;D

T40.....LOL! 

Also, thanks for the RRP post on our two travelers!  Hope we get a glimpse one day of D27 on cam!

T40, thanks for the update on D27 & D36!  D27 was a 'Momma's girl' so it wouldn't surprise me if she did try to eventually settle in or around Decorah.  She had a great role model in Mom, and is quite intelligent herself.  Wouldn't it be great if you DID spot D36 this year?  That would be awesome!

Am I missing something??

Looks like 27 was in nest area but traveling north on 9/12

And 36 up north and headed south on 9/14

But comparing the patterns over the years, they are shooting almost straight as an arrow on the same general flight pattern tween Iowa and Canada.  Innate instinct?

Bwahahaha!!!!! Y'all crack me up 😄 I don't have a food truck, but if I did, it goes without saying there'd be lots of cheese 😁

Puff - You didn't miss anything! D27 was nearest to the hatchery on 9-8-21, but headed SE. Then she turned and headed NW on 9-12-21 in the direction of Decorah.

D36 seems to be on a ramble. True, he was headed south on 9-14-21, but I wouldn't put any money on where he is now. ;D

And there are all kinds of possibilities for why they seem to make a beeline to Canada and then, in time, turn around and head home.

One of the regular posters on explore.org visited Decorah yesterday, and shared a few pics of Mom and also a pic of the retention pond.  He mentioned in his caption for the pic that the retention pond was drained, and ready to be dredged.  He was nice enough to let me share on the forum.  Strange to see the pond with no water in it!

I don't ever recall seeing that, Lisa. Does anyone know if it's dredged regularly?

I am wondering if it has been a while since it's been dredged.
I don't ever remember seeing it like this, or ever hearing anyone mentioning it getting dredged.

The Dive-In Diner is closed for renovations. Hope Mom and DM2 take it all in stride.

I wonder how long it takes to dredge?  We don't need anything that would make Mom and DM2 not want to return to their old nest area.  Hope it gets filled again fairly soon.  I don't ever recall hearing of the retention pond being dredged before either.  Wonder if this was precipitated by a state inspection or something.
