Lisa, great pics today!
T40, thanks for the updates on D27 and D36 and the rest.  Does RRP have cameras for us to watch at any Golden Eagle nests?

I swear this female has to be one of mom's. Some days, to me, she looks just like her, just a tad bit younger!

monarch - There have been many days that I have thought that same exact thing!
Monarch and Lisa, I also see Mom when I look at the female. We're very fortunate to have this pair hanging around the hatchery and showing great interest in N1. It bodes well for next season. I do miss Mom, who will forever be in my heart, as is Dad Decorah. And the handsome DM2 has been a good mate for mom. I sure do miss them and hope they're doing well. I look forward to someone posting an update soon.

Thanks, T40, for bringing over RRP's FB info. about our travelers!

nan - I plan on taking a ride over to N3, and seeing if I can get a peek at Mom & DM2.
That would be great, Lisa! I hope you have news to share. Have a wonderful and safe trip to Decorah!

Did y'all get a gander of the look of N1 this morning.  Our two new house-hunters have been really busy.  Look at all the foundation sticks - almost all their work is missing is the soft stuff and the egglets.  I sure do hope this all works out the way we're planning.   ;D ;D

Hey Puff, Happy July to you, and all the other Decorah watchers and posters, and the camera operators most of all!

After calling from a favorite overnight perch, the New BEs did some big stick work early this morning, for sure.  The male was moving things around on N1 -- watch rewind when he flies to the Y for the black feathers in his tail.  The female was on the nest, then the Y, then she flew upstream and quickly returned with a really long stick, and worked with it on the nest.  No soft material, no egglets.  Maybe they are setting the picnic table for some really big fish on the Fourth of July!   :D

Puff, that female is stick-go-getter!  ;D 

Here is a screenshot I took this morning of a really long stick she hauled in from upstream.

Lisa, lovely pics this morning.  Did you catch the GBH in a tree top about 8:00?

From about 7:00 this morning, the New BE male perched on a snag hanging from the bluffs upstream from N1 and the Y.
