We have your Nestflix from Decorah, Decorah North, and the Flyway! I loved all of these videos, but I especially enjoyed seeing Mom and DM2 working on the nest, the food chase at the North nest, and the food fight on the Mississippi Flyway – or most of the videos we’ve rounded up for you tonight! We hope you are doing well and enjoy these videos as much as we did. Thank you so much for watching with us!
November 17, 2020: Nestorations at N2B – https://youtu.be/4Zn-UufvC7A. Mom is in N2B when DM2 brings a stick to the nest, knocking her with it as he tries to fly past. She hops up on to the Skywalk – better get off the runway at this suddenly busy eagleport! DM2 joins her at 1:04 and we get some spectacular close-ups beginning at 1:40.

November 17, 2020: Mr. North starts work on the foundation!
November 17, 2020: North Nestorations – https://youtu.be/xn-xCVlroQI. The North’s busied themselves with nestorations this morning! Look for stick tango at 2:33 (DNF cannot decide where the stick should go), and 4:01, close-ups of DNF at 4:45, a cool talon shot at 5:30, a grass fly-in at 6:47, close-ups of Mr. North at 7:50, and a crow followed by the remains of a deer at the end of the video.
November 14, 2020: Let the food chase begin! https://youtu.be/mJmlRxHIxns. The video opens with a nice view of the North nest while the sounds of a food fight echo in the background. Mr. North touches down at 1:31 but loses his fish to DNF at 1:35! He takes off in hot pursuit as the two circle round and back into the nest again. The two eventually perch on a favorite branch (check out the wear spots in the moss) for a stare-off. The chase resumes at 5:39, but Mr. North does not get his fish back from DNF!
November 13, 2020: Mr. North defending his fish – https://youtu.be/zWW1L2uBe3k. Who was Mr. North defending his fish from? We hear the neighborhood crow watch as Mr. North flies into the nest, vocalizing, and immediately assumes a defensive posture. We get some great close-ups starting at 1:31, although we still don’t know who is threatening to steal the fish. Mr. North starts eating his morning trout at 4:17.
November 17, 2020: An eagle pool party/food fight at the Flyway.
November 17, 2020: Flyway Food Fight – https://youtu.be/vdLRHYsA6pE.
The video opens with a shot of a handsome subadult eagle sitting on our solar pole. What are all those vocalizations in the background? An eagle has caught some feathery prey and a food fight ensues. There are so many eagle comings and goings that it’s hard to keep track of everyone! Look for a range of ages (but a lot of juveniles – a bigger percentage of the population in the fall), two basic sizes (female eagles are bigger than males), and a whole lot of attempts at stealing the prey! #MississippiFlyway
November 17, 2020: Juvie Bald Eagle – https://youtu.be/oeMIyr4vjso. Seventeen lovely minutes of a subadult eagle perched on our solar pole!
