2019 Memory Lane Countdown, #8: The North Nest Family
After watching two eaglets in the Decorah nest, it was sometimes hard to turn to the North Nest and watch lone eaglet DN9, who had no siblings to play with. DN9 will never know about the thousands of ‘aunties’ and ‘uncles’ who watched her grow up and cherished her interactions with Mom DNF and Dad Mr. North. She seemed to enjoy spending time with them and we all got another look into the social side of an eagle’s life. Food may be the most important thing, but it isn’t the only thing! https://youtu.be/QYhbJvUpktE. Oh and https://youtu.be/448M4XW42zc (I especially love the beginning moments). And this video: https://youtu.be/wMiFyKUVugQ. By the end of May, DN9 was more than able to take care of herself, but we still saw Mr. North and DNF make long visits to the nest, with or without food and in all kinds of weather.
Thanks to Liz Grindstaff for today’s holiday fun! I’m drawing up my eaglet Christmas list right now!
