This morning seems almost like a repeat of yesterday. Both the juvies in a creek tree at daybreak, no parent visible and no pic. Then both came to the nest and nearby branches. And they were both on the ground, picking at bits of this and that in the weeds.  DN14 came to rest on the nest for a while.

Two food drops by DNF, one at noon and one at 3:00, both muskrats.  Love when DNF brings prey because she always announces her delivery!
This set of pics from noon time. DN14 won the mantle battle, but DN13 ended up with the pelt and the tail. There's going to be a really big pellet from this one.

Tig, Love the pics when the eagles look upside down and other poses!

More from today . . . No feedings, just young eagles being eagles.

Thanks for the kind words, nanimal & Lisa.  Any day could be dispersal day, and our last chance for pics of these remarkable eagles!

Nothing exciting so far this Sunday morning.

So true! And then after the fact, it's a happy/sad feeling for me.

DN14 got an afternoon opossum. DN13 seems to be elsewhere. I think it was MrN who brought it to the nest, because very white head and didn't call like DNF usually does.

Assuming that's DN14 I'm watching now 7:30 a.m., perched in a leafy tree (not sure which one). Pretty morning in Decorah.
