Good Morning Lisa,
Thank you for the beautiful morning sunrise.
Copulate???  Did you actually see them do the deed?  Do I have to go back and rewind this? ;D ;D ;D

Yes....you might be able to catch it on rewind, it was real quick.

I came in at this point and was lazy and didn't go backward before I almost fell out of my chair thinking you were talking about Mom and DM2.  LOL

BL - A site to report a FIREBALL?! I love the interwebs. 8)

Rosieann's video of the meteor hit my newsfeeds! 8)

https://fireball.amsmeteors.org/members/imo_view/event/2021/6837#video_box

AMS Event 6837-2021.

RRP N1 camera facing WSW at dawn > LisaG heads up > Rosieann B. YouTube ing it > BL to AMS > 10/23/2021 1154 UTC.

Pure luck a great camera catching that. Nope a lot of hard work. 
Somehow my inner ear Mom just kicked in, hatchery work done, less 2 footers, corn husks, woo me.

Beats the heck out of Ring ground level doorbell cameras.
How many fireballs fall in sight of high definition live streamed wildlife cameras ?
Ones mounted up in trees with a clear view of the horizon ??
Dutiful watchers watching.  8)  Decorah Eagle Lovers.  :-*   

Not my first nor hopefully last fireball report to the AMS.
Their new Report A Fireball page is slick as snot compared to the old one. Kudos to them.

The ones we've reported previously are what we like to call "Rippers".
I have seen some serious rippers in my time at elevation.

Black ink sky with pin holes in it. Standing at such a place. Jaw dropping night sky severe clear. 
At eye level the black, the white world of mountain carpet below.
A white eyeball with it's TRAIN a rainbow of melting metal colors ripping across the black from one end of the atmosphere to the other. Aconcagua 19,490 ft. 1993.
When your heart skips a beat from something you just saw, you know your alive.

T40 I agree with you. 40 years ago it was definitely a meteor.

I've held in the palm of my hand an iron meteorite that we actually saw fall to earth while we were in Vermont.
Ripper from N to S right down Lake Groton, VT.

About the size of a baseball it is.
Weight in hand of that stellar object was indescribable.
Gnarled only begins to describe the super heated exterior of that object.
Landed in a field in Poughkeepsie NY.
   
Man made space junk exploding N to S somewhere over KS in 2021.
I can't rule that out either unfortunately.   :(

AMS found it.

tj--I just had one of those moments when I checked my youtube subscriptions.  "First cornstalk delivery of the season."  Alas, it was for North nest.  My heart is still ricky-tickying.

A beautiful Cooper's Hawk yesterday.  Lisa -- I think this was the hawk you saw earlier in the morning yesterday.

Morning pics from Decorah -On rewind, you can see DM2 heading west towards N1, then turned right in from of the pasture tree and headed back to N2B where he landed on the skywalk with his breakfish!  He cleaned his talons, and headed off east in the direction of N3.
