So warm and cute watching little gooseling trying to follow M and D on that dunking thing they keep doing.  It does go underwater - like why am I doing this for? - but doesn't stay bottoms up for long.  The next thing would be to figure out what it's suppose to do while upside down.  MG and FG are right there giving pointers.   :D  About 9:25 nest time if you want the watch.

Forgot to post yesterday, but looked like HM perched upstream bluff side for a good while yesterday morning.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Hatchery-area Moms and Mom WannaBes

Eagles and Geese surprise us with their resiliancy and bravery as they raise families year after year.

Now that the maple tree leaves are out, it's getting hard to see adult eagles perching in the branches near N6.  I think the Pasture Tree is a maple!

STL - The first pic of yours, the BE this morning was on M2.  Mom, Dad Decorah and DM2 use to perch in that tree all the time.  It is good to see that HM or HD is using that tree now.

I remember M2 as a favorite perching spot for previous eagle pairs!  Thanks for the tree ID, Lisa.
