Very interesting, huh!  Here's a pic of HM & HD in trees near N2B about 10:00 this morning.  So it seems that they are testing a location with a starting nest kind of between N2B and N1.

Late afternoon, the cam ops at Decorah found a small flock of turkey vultures way out and way high in trees, perching and mating.  Lots of activity in April.

At N2B, the female goose is sitting tight [no pic].  The female at N1 has been doing the same, and she checked her eggs about 4:40 PM; all looks OK.

HM and HD have spent time today in the pasture tree, seen in pics from two different cameras, I think.

Morning pics from Decorah - Early morning view with what looks like HM standing on new nest.  And, HM on the lower bluff tree getting a stick and heading back to new nest tree.

Really great pics, Lisa!  I love watching the eagles obtaining their nesting materials.

See panorama pic for location of N2B (orange arrow) and the new site (orange circle) for HM & HD building a nest, which looks like it overhangs the road from the horse pasture and bridge corner.  This view isn't quite wide enough to show the horse barn and N1, but they are off to the left. 

Questions:  Is the new tree alive, just without leaves yet?  What kind of tree is it?

That new tree was in full bloom when I was in Decorah last summer, so I am guessing it is still alive.  I am not positive, but think its a Cottonwood, too.

Excitement is building at our Decorah Eagles Nest but this time it's Canada Goose eggs hatching.  Please join us at 1:00 PM Central time for a Flash chat as one of the eggs is moving along nicely and pips on others.  We have 6 eggs all total. See you then!

Looks like there will be goslings today at N1, what a thrill!  The eagles are aware, and the geese are honking and on high alert.  All very eggciting.   ;D
