Thank you Lisa. And thank you for all the beautiful posts you have captured over the past year. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Looking forward to this nesting season. I was checking out the Southwest Florida cam, and I see we are probably hours away from a pip.

DNF came to the nest as the daylight was the softest pink this morning.  She flew off toward the area "behind" the nest and the camera followed her out of sight.  Not much happening since then today at the North's place.

Beautiful pics, STL!  Thanks!

Activity around the North nest today. Light snow fell overnight.  I think about 9:00 AM, one visiting eagle, a young, darkish one perched in the pine trees. South end of the pasture, is that correct, Ginger or Lisa?

About 8:00 this morning, DNF brought two large cornstalks to the nest. Did not see the fly-in or landing, but suddenly, there they were. MrN came to help with arranging.  More nest work later in the morning (no pic).

About 3:00 this afternoon, two adults were perched in branches south of the nest. Likely to be MrN in the lower branch and DNF above. And at 5:00, they landed on the nest for an evening check.

"On the second day of Christmas
My true love brought to me
Two big cornstalks,
And a long stick from a nearby tree."

And now I'll move the lyrics to the off-topics part of the Forum. Feel free to contribute a day's line!   :D

The snow this morning was beautiful.  Love the pics STL.  Keep an eye out for antennas on the visitors.  D27 has been tracked near Decorah.

Snowy stuff at the North's location today. DNF and MrN came to the nest before daybreak, then perched in creek trees.
