MrN still has the distinctive bump, like a feather mole, under his right eye.  Helps in IDing him.  The feather stuck to his beak will fall away soon, but the bump seems to be permanent.  It's the result of an injury two or three years ago.

STL - Great pics!

Good to see, beautiful DNF & handsome Mr N yesterday.  The SA wasn't too bad looking either.

GHO
Oct 15, 2022  FROST on ground - 29 degrees
7 am  I hear GHO owls calling
Its so faint I had to turn sound up

These cam ops are fantastic.
So good to see these birds

A young eagle visited.
The young are known to return to their natal nest.  In some cases an offspring has taken the parents nest.  So on both these Decorah cams, its possible these young are around. 

( I confess its a challenge for me to keep which nest is which )

Questions for the camera operators and expert watchers of Decorah North:  The limb hanging down from the upper right of the view in the pic -- what is it attached to?   I think the dead snag on the left is the old Yonder Branch, might be its own tree.  Is that correct?

STL -- Take a look at these maps for some info. about Yonder Branch, etc.

And, here's a snip from today from the new cam with Yonder Branch and the Stump outlined

Ginger, thanks so much for the Google docs for branch references at DNN!  Soooo helpful.   But, I'm still wondering what we call the dangling limb, and what it is attached to, circled in green on the pic copy here.

Sorry, STL.  I don't know what the dangling limb is attached to.  Maybe someone else can figure it out.

Yesterday (10/16 -- Sunday) a juvie red-tailed hawk flew onto the right side of the nest and then to the left-side perch branch, and finally onto Yonder Branch where they spent a little time hunting before flying off.



Mr. and DNF roosted on the Love Tree and then made a brief nest visit this morning and did some light housekeeping.  When DNF was aerating, she sneezed in Mr.'s face and he looked surprised (video).

First hard frost in Decorah?  The Norths did a bit of nest work this morning about 10:00.
What do you think?  Will they remove the patio bush or leave it alone?

Great pics, STL

Haha, the patio bush...I think it adds something to the nest.   :D
